I think that we could add a test to see if the lfs user, group and home dir 
are already present.

Maybe adding a "clean-chapter04-keep-lfs-user" target?

Plus, in that case we should to add another test in 022-settingenvironment to 
see if there is a previous .bashrc file and made a backup before creating the 
new one. 

And then restore that backup when running clean-chapter04-keep-lfs-user.

Maybe you meant /home/lfs?

There is no "rm -rf /mnt/lfs" on the clean-* targets.

Many thanks :-)

I'm very happy to see book's editors playing with jhalfs.
