I got it to build by removing the itemized list structure.  Shall I put
the beta in the book for now so we can get more feedback on it?  I've
also tidied up the XML to the LFS "House-style".. I'm going to write a
document on that soon.. basically, it's that we stick to 80-column lines
and instead of:


we do

This is because openjade is borken and inserts horrible characters if
you do the first one...  (try viewing the LFS FAQ in links and you'll
see what I mean!).

So Henning, do you want me to commit the beta to CVS so that it is in
the book?

> PS: I nearly did cut the Synopsis, should I?
IMO - Yeah - I don't think it's necessary.

Other than that I have to say *great*.  It's a really good section.. Now
I just have to get around to writing something that big... ;-)
