Gee, going from RH to LFS in the first few months of playing with Linux is 
certainly jumping in at the deep end (-:

I certainly admire your dedication! LFS, though much easier to understand than 
past versions, is still a very difficult way to get to grips with Linux. But 
you seem to be working at this the right way and doing your homework, so keep 
up the good work!

Hopefully this will be a very educational and rewarding experience.

Glad to help those who do their homework.
