First and foremost; Welcome to LFS! But, you missed a step. See:
The second important box tells you to extract the tarball and enter the
newly created directory before executing any of the book commands.
Good luck and most importantly, as frustrating as it can be getting
started, have fun. It's all worth it when you see it boot *your* LFS
the first time.
