LFS 3.3 automated install

Hi all,

  I am interested in building a LFS 3.3 system using the profile from
nALFS-1.0.7 but I'm not too clear on how to do it. I have built many
LFS systems from scratch and also used Chris Lingards excellent automated
install CD but I want to have a play with this myself. 

  I have a little idea about what to do but I would like somebody to point
out if this is wrong before I go and do lots of head scratching.

o	edit $ALFS/profiles/entities/general to suit my needs (i.e.
partitions, dirs)

o	copy all packages for the install into the correct dir
	(default is /usr/src/packages/LFS/packages-&LFS-version)

o	change DEFAULT_INTERACTIVE = 1 to 0 in $ALFS/src/config.h to force 
	non-interactive mode (what's the command line option -i ?)

o	execute ./nALFS profiles/LFS/LFS-3.3.xml from within $ALFS

  Do I have this correct? If not could some kind person point me in the
direction. I volunteer to write a hint on how to build a LFS from nALFS
I do this as I have toyed with the idea of using nALFS only to be put off
by the lack of documentation.
