I didn't peek with vim. Was I supposed to? I was trying to follow the BLFS 
book closely. And I didn't install vim. I am using nano. :)

I compiled using gcc-3.3.3 (I followed LFS5.1.1). However I have gcc-2.95 in 
my /opt directory (the one I used to compile the kernel). Should I use that 
one instead?
