I just wanted to say that thanks in large part to the wonderful 
community here on the mailing lists, I finally achieved my first major 

LFS CVS is installed and working properly,
Console mouse services is set up for my USB mouse,
X is working fine, also with mouse support,
Links, Lynx, and ncftp all installed and functional,
all major libraries installed and other misc utilities.

What a huge thrill it was to see - after much tweaking, fiddling, and 
research - my mouse cursor appear during boot-up and then with fingers 
crossed, typing startx and seeing X start up with the little clock in 
the corner and an xterm with a waiting bash prompt.

Thanks very much to all who have helped me thus far, and especially for 
the LFS team who put this project together in the first place!

Now let's see if I can get KDE or Gnome up and running....  :o)
