Fail to create 'binutils-build' directory

Hi Chris and Jim,

Tks for your advice.

Whether you meant

lfs:~$ cd /mnt/lfs/sources/
lfs:/mnt/lfs/sources$     

and then run the command here
lfs:/mnt/lfs/sources$ mkdir ../binutils-build


All packages and patches for building LFS are in
/mnt/lfs/sources/

However I still don't understand how following 3
hidden files exist on host FC3

root:/home/lfs# ls -al
total 36
drwx------  2 lfs  lfs  4096 Jun 29 13:17 .
drwxr-xr-x  6 root root 4096 Jun 28 17:13 ..
-rw-------  1 lfs  lfs   622 Jun 29 13:17
.bash_history
-rw-r--r--  1 lfs  lfs    59 Jun 28 18:37
.bash_profile
-rw-r--r--  1 lfs  lfs    96 Jun 28 23:27 .bashrc

Are they for the host FC3?

I can't find these 3 files for LFS in /mnt/lfs/,
/mnt/lfs/sources and /mnt/lfs/tools

[root at localhost ~]# 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 ..
drwx------  2 root root 16384 Jun  2 11:41 lost+found
drwxrwxrwt  2 lfs  root  4096 Jun 28 13:45 sources
drwxr-xr-x  2 lfs  root  4096 Jun 28 17:05 tools

/mnt/lfs/tools is an empty directory.

Did I make a mistake.

B.R.
