What do you mean by "better organized"? The scripts in the lfs-book are
based on redhat and debian versions of scripts, plus some other stuff we
came up with ourselves, minus all the possible support for all possible
scenarios for all possible hardware (which makes a distribution's script
very big, bloated and sometimes hard to follow, understand and modify).

But, if you find Redhat's better to work with, your choice of course. The
LFS scripts aren't perfect, will never be. They just show _a_ possible way
of how it _can_ be done, not how it has to be done.
