That's an interesting one, but if you are correct doesn't that mean
everyone using liveCD should have the issue? I just checked and the
version I have and it's the most recent development version of liveCD
(non-SVN, it's off of the site). But I will see... although I have to
start over now since I decided to install windows (need it for
classes) and learned windows won't install on my drive unless to do it
after linux (due to my partitioning choices) so I had to format. =..(

I hate windows, but I needed VC++ 2003 for a class...

Anyways, I hope you're right, any but I am still a little confused as
to why this problem would not affect everyone.

> I had the same problem because the LiveCD I made in mid-December was for LFS-6.1(.0) and provided perl-5.8.6, but I downloaded the LFS book v6.1.1, which had me install Ch5 as though it was 5.8.7.  Internal files had directory pointers to 5.8.6, which didn't exist.  All I had to do was move the /lib/perl/perl5.8.7 to /lib/perl/perl5.8.6 and installation proceeded.  Check that out, maybe you're the third guy with this same problem in the past few weeks.
