on the book says to:
cd $LFS &&
chroot $LFS bla....bla

what confusing me that on what user should I tun this command,
when I entering as root on my red hat system, this command doesn't meant anything(I know that 
by try to enter cd then my home dir still /root at the top of my filesystem)

I build lfs on /lfs, / is root of my red hat system.
