I am only using the lfs 6.3 LiveCD (this is the newest and last lfs
LiveCD released) so I will have a working environment to build  lfs
6.5. You don't have to have a Linux OS installed on the hard drive
where you are building lfs if you have a LiveCD (any LiveCD). The
LiveCD lets you have network access so I can pull all the lfs 6.5
tarballs over. I have the lfs 6.5 book on another computer sitting
next to the machine I am trying to build lfs 6.5 on.
