Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe

	tar cjf lfs.tar.bz2 $LFS

would be correct.  "j" to compress in bzip2 format.  Also the output
file name would need to come before any files/directories you want to
back up.  With "f" specified, it would look for the output file name
to be first.

Now I just need to find out why the tar man page didn't install on my
box.  My problem ... back to the book.
