I am sorry for the lack of information. I guess that it is obvious that
I am a newbie at this. You are correct in the assessment that /tools/bin/gcc
was not working. I would type gcc --version and I would get information
about gcc but then I would get that the directory does not exist. I exited
lfs and re-compile gcc as root, then I went back to lfs and everything
worked. Weird, but it worked. I have finished the entire process, I am only
looking into how I can put this distro into an iso? Any ideas?
PS Thanks for all that you guys have done with the LiveCD. I enjoy have all
of the packages immediately available.

Desire is the ingredient that changes the hot
water of mediocrity to the steam of outstanding
success. It's the ingredient that enables a person
with average ability to successfully compete with
those who have far more.
Ability is important--dependability is critical!
