Hi, I've been sitting quietly in the background being a good boy and 
reading everything till now and think I got the general g if what's 
suposed to be happening here.

I am more than willing to test some stuff but will probably need some 
slightly more "hand holdy" destructions. I havent read winter.txt yet 
(why winter?) but it's on my list to print and read this week. Am I 
correct in saying that everything is using the packages from lfs-5 ATM, 
if so I will start to build an V-5 system (which I need to do anyway.)

Those who understand binary, and those who dont.

The function of the expert is not to be more right than other people,
but to be wrong for more sophisticated reasons.
