Hi folks,

Following
5.4. Binutils-2.15.91.0.2 - Pass 1
http://www.sg.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/view/6.0/chapter05/binutils-pass1.html

to continue building LFS

[satimis at localhost ~]$ su - lfs
Password:
lfs:~$ echo $LFS
/mnt/lfs

lfs:~$ mkdir ../binutils-build
mkdir: cannot create directory `../binutils-build':
Permission denied

lfs:~$ ls -al /mnt/lfs/
total 44
drwxr-xr-x  5 root root  4096 Jun 28 17:05 .
drwxr-xr-x  7 root root  4096 Jun 27 14:19 ..

drwxrwxrwt  2 lfs  root  4096 Jun 28 13:45 sources

I was not allowed to create 'binutils-build'.  Any
advice?  TIA
