Same here. I'll check out the bootscripts and see if find any discrepancies.

	Yes the process is automated but I assume the commands in the profile are 
the same as those in the book? Command for command I don't think anything 
would be different if I was typing them at the keyboard or a program was 
running them for me. Would it be worth it to build the system manually 
following each chapter in the book? The automated process takes about 6 
hours and 30 minutes to complete. If I remove all gcc "make check"s I can 
get it down to almost 5 hours. I usually let it run at night. I also checked 
the md5sum on the bootscripts and everything was ok. Could the scripts 
somehow get messed up upon install?

I can verify that I only commented out the "make check"s in the profile.

Thanks again,
