Well I for one appreciate the time and effort that is put in to all of the
*fs. I was actually planning to post in the next day or two anyway, not to
post a question or bug, but simply to report that in the last few days I
managed to successfully build both LFS and HLFS.

Both of the builds worked flawlessly for me this time; in the case of the
HLFS build it was quite an achievement as I have tried to build it many
times before without success.

As it stands at the moment, I have both systems on a single HDD, happily
dual booting with a shared /boot partition. In fact, my HLFS is that
secured that I cant even mount a usb pendrive at the moment, although Im
not sure if that is down to the HLFS settings or something Ive done with
the kernel .

Anyway, I just wanted to say a big thanks to all who put their time into
*fs, it really is appreciated.


PS. Im typing this in a very small window on a webmail system, so
apologies in advance if the formatting etc goes belly up.
