I did not mean to fix the instructions in the book, I meant to fix my problem. I'm sure there is no problems in the book. I'm sorry for mis communication. I'll definitely go through the link. My problem is that i have install in /static/bin. can I copy it to /usr/bin/ ? Since I get an error as message as follows
/usr/bin/install: no such file or directory.
Once again, I did not mean that there was a problem in the book.

Based on your e-mail and your previous e-mails, I would recommend 
reading .

Are you suggesting that the instructions are broken and need to be 
fixed? Many people have installed LFS using the current instructions 
without any problems.

Also, you have not provided enough info to debug your problem.
