The installation steps are displayed on the screen when bash starts;
they consist of:
| 1) first, partition your hard disk using fdisk, cfdisk or sfdisk
This assumes that you know what a partiton table is, and how to create
the necessary ext2/swap partitions. You can do a 'man fdisk' to get more
information (yes, the manpages are on the CD :-). You may also read the
book, which is located in /root/lfs/LFS-BOOK-3.2.txt
| 2) create the ext2 and swap filesystems with mke2fs and mkswap
Again, you have the manpages at your disposal.
| 3) mount the target partition on /mnt/lfs and activate the swap
Maybe I should have added that you can activate the swap with 'swapon'
| 4) then compile your LFS system by running make in ~/lfs/packages
That's the quickest way to go - the next release of the cd will contain
gpm, lynx & multiple console, so that people who don't trust my Makefile
can cut&paste ;-)
| 5) compile the kernel in /mnt/lfs/usr/src/linux and install it
| 6) edit configuration files in /mnt/lfs/etc, run lilo and reboot.
The book contains detailed instructions on how to do this.
Hope this helps,
