Create the directory and move into it.

Fetch the entire lfs system into this directory, plus a script to build the 
system. Can't you add a -z9 to enable compressed downloading? Still a lot to 
fetch on a 56K modem (-; About 150M or so? Just wondering how large a USB

Build an entire LFS system from scratch, with minimal system requirements. 
then create an ISO of this system as a bootable image.

Sounds like a great starting place to build a custom LFS/BLFS system from. Are 
the scripts well commented? How difficult would it be to use this to 
cross-compile from x86 to Opteron? I'm getting a Dual Opteron soon and will 
need an Opteron LFS-LiveCD. I'd love to try cross-compiling this myself.

And finally, thanks for all your hard work in making the LiveCD's and keeping 
them up-to-date. I'm sure it's not said enough, so let me say it again, and 
encourage others to say it more often. Thank you for your time, effort and 
sharing you knowledge and skills with the rest of us. It's because of people 
like you that the OpenSource community works as well as it does.
