1. Become root

2. Remount $LFS as you did in chapter 3.

Chapter 3. Preparing a new partition - Mounting the new partition

3. chroot per chapter 6

Chapter 6. Installing basic system software - Entering the chroot environment

4. Remount proc and devpts.

Chapter 6. Installing basic system software - Mounting the proc and devpts file

5. Continue where you left off.

6. Bake at 350degF for 10-15 minutes or until cheese is melted and crust is
golden brown.
