So how do I get packages??

Did I miss something in LFS?

Is it presumed that any package you need as part of BLFS you need to
download from your original host environment until you get enough
network packages installed (ftp etc...) to be able to talk to the
outside world on your LFS platform?

Is there a package or a step I missed?

In order to bypass the initial inability to talk to the outside world on
lfs, do people continually boot back and forth from original host to
lfs, or do they boot their original host system, and then do their lfs
stuff in a chrooted window?

Or, do they do something else?
