I was thinking something like a chapter for /tools, another chapter for 
building a system to reboot with udev etc, and another chapter for final 
system. The reboot chapter could be skipped if you chroot. I think a lot of 
users will need to reboot, unless they modify their host kernel in advance 
with prerequisites. I don't know of any distro with a kernel that has all the 
drivers needed to pass glibc's test suite, and posix capabilities, except 
maybe the newest Slackware.
