It seems to me that it would be beyond the scope of current LFS, but
if the base architecture of the boot scripts could support BLFS
additions to it, I would be all for it.

I will be adding a section in the BLFS book on setting up wireless
tools and connecting to a wireless network as soon as BLFS-6.0 is

So, if there's a way to implement something in the bootscripts that
could then be picked up by BLFS, it would be a good thing. I've not
looked at the network init script whatsoever to see what all it would
take to get wireless up and running LFS style, as the machine I tested
and use wireless on uses custom boot scripts.
