Hi. I successfully downgraded my hlfs box to kernel 2.4. Its not complicated. 
I'm thinking its maybe a good time to make hlfs-bootscripts. Taking the 
lfs-bootscripts, adding a random seed script, and making udev and hotplug 
optional (install with 'make install-hotplug'). I was working on 
an /etc/daily script too, that can maybe go in later.

There was talk before about adding iptables rule sets to each service, like 
sshd. So that rules go up and down with the service. Does that still sound 
like a good plan? I think it would need some sort of central config file to 
set internal and external interfaces and IPs.. like /etc/iptables.conf or
