After reading through multiple faq's NG. postings in both LFS and other 
spots, I'm still unclear on if I should be creating or not creating a 
symbolic link to the Linux source.
I'm currently in the lfs 5.0 book at
http://lfs.crash404.com/lfs/view/stable/chapter06/kernel.html

I ultimately unpacked the bz2 linux kernal into /usr/src/linux-2.4.22 
and ran
ln -s linux-2.4.22 linux

Please somebody tell me if that was the worst or best (or indifferent?) 
thing I could have done.
