Thanks. Wonder if it would be helpful to make that clear in 
the book. I simply assumed that when I downloaded I should 
just make the source dir and untar into that all at once 
rather then waiting until the the lfs user was created and 
the environment setup.

I know someone else recently ran into the same problem when
installing the kernel package so I'm not alone.
