SORRY to throw all this awful stuff at you,but i wouldn't be accused of 
sending too little output..about the previous problems with LFS,they 
mysteriously disappeared as i applied my usual brute force method of erasing 
and starting over--i'm plotting my progress with every new try,and if it 
remains linear,i can reasonably expect to be out of this tunnel my 
neurotic-obsessive-compulsive nature has trapped me in by march 2004,the 
music helping,of course,although sheherazade for the final triumph is back on 
the shelf.I guess the host becomes jealous as  the result of mounting 
/mnt/lfs grows into visibility,maybe i should move it away into another hd 
:-) Anyway,why on earth would glibc complain gcc is too old when the version 
3.3.1 is newer than what is recommended in its install,one would wonder..can 
i install glibc out of the chroot environment using the host?thank you 
again,allard, for the musical tips,although the 6th is a bit too much of 
oh-what-a beautiful-morning for me..
