All the questions have to be answered before the recommendation is made to 
LFS.  To do otherwise would be making the same error I made the first time.

Just take this seriously, for those that don't remember, the changes to 
bootscripts made between 3.1 and 3.2 broke the entire BLFS project and the 
changes that made it into 3.3 were committed one day prior to release.  It 
could have been a whole lot worse.
