Btw, after all the recent posts, I think you all need a big note of 
appreciation and encouragement.  Everyone who has contributed to this 
project, IMO, has helped to make something very awesome.  For myself, 
the time I have spent trying to learn and understand Linux, mostly from 
online sources, has been often frustrating.  When I came across your 
site, it was like I hit an oasis.  (Yeah, it sounds a bit cheesy, but 
that's what it felt like.) LFS is different than the majority of stuff 
out there.  For starters the book is authoritative - you know what you 
are doing, and why you are doing it, and it shows.  Secondly, it is 
well written so that it is easy to follow and understand - there's 
almost always an accompanying explanation to show why something is 
being done a certain way.  Thirdly, the fact that it's you, a variety 
of people, with a variety of skills, all freely helping because you 
*love* LFS and what it's all about.  Of course, if you're reading this, 
you know all this stuff already.  But I think you needed to hear it 
You guys are doing awesome.  Keep up the good work.
