Isn't this too much "taking the reader by the hand"? Also, no program 
actually requires /dev/cdrom (unless I've been using devfs too long :). 
LFS for me is all about choice and freedom and I think BLFS should 
follow a similair path. There's a thin line between providing basic 
installation instructions and customising the system to your taste; I'm 
not sure if this falls under the latter. In my understanding (and 
IMHO), this sort of customization should always be a part which can be 
suggested in BLFS but not prescribed.

I think BLFS shouldn't be more newbie-friendly than LFS is. In fact, we 
should assume more advanced readers in BLFS, since they allready have 
experience with LFS. IMO we should give links to documentation on 
user/group permissions instead of reminders.

Or have I totally misunderstood the concept of BLFS? :)

(BTW thanks for all your hard work - I wish I had enough spare time to 
catch up on writing for BLFS again.. sigh)
