I am begining installing lfs starting from a mandrake 8.0 distro on an 

I am at the very first step, the 3.0 book says :

>Before you attempt to install Bash, you have to check to make sure your 
distribution has the
>/usr/lib/libcurses.a and /usr/lib/libncurses.a files.

I can only find the dynamic libs : (x= 1, 3, 3.0, 4 etc 
up to 5.2)

Can I proceed with the Bash install ? If not what should I do ?

Thank you for any help
