When I did "rm -rf /lfs", the rm failed on /dev and /proc.  After rm-ing
all the other directories in /lfs, I looked at those two, hesitated, and
sent this email.  Now that I've progressed as far as I have the second
time around, I'm thinking "umount" is what I need.  But that's a little
scary since it is my production server, and I'm loathe to umount the
wrong /proc and /dev directories.
