No. In fact, I was going to wait until the commit rendered so
everyone could view the changes, and ask this very question.

Overall, I think the instructions are much better. However, I
have questions on some of it. The SCSI emulation was a main
point of concern. Any advice is welcome.

Alex, I encourage you to provide instructions to substitute for what
I currently have. In fact the two items you bring up are the items I
am concerned with. Please provide updated instructions, or point
me to something where I can better educate myself on the subject and
provide better BLFS instructions.

Overall, however,  do you think the instructions have improved?
(sure they can be better, but I'm doing my best)
