Let's get to the core problem

We have to start somewhere with designing yes and I think it's best,
easiest and not to mention cheapest to start with a harddisk based
install. That way you don't have to burn a new CD every time you make
some change. Harddisk based install is also faster and will speed up

I have more or less decided to go with Bryan Dumm's way (the profiles).
The tool is just a framework that by itself doesn't do all that much.
The driving force behind the tool is a profile you load into it. The
profile determines what the tool does and how it is going to do it.

An LSB system will just be one of those profiles you can select. Load
LSB profile and the tool will setup your LFS system according to LSB
