Hi guys:

Just to let you know that I finish my fourth lfs build (6.6) this time 
and it was a success!!, I use to modify some lfs steps about the 
partition,etc to make all in a vmware virtual machine and is nicely 
booting now!

Thanks to the lfs developers, lfs is a great tool to teach others how a 
linux/unix system is composed and for what is each part, build a linux 
system from scratch is as usual a excellent learning tool (I use it as a 
teacher here at my University from 3 years now).

One minor issue that is bugging me, is that there is something wrong 
about the sda1 and ext3 filesystem about the dates, since each time that 
I turn on the virtual machine the system stop at booting telling me that 
the check date on the filesystem is in the future and it have to stop 
the booting, so, next boot I enter into the Vmware BIOS and change the 
date there to something in the future (let say 5-6-2011), then booting 
my lfs it check that the cheking date expire,and it do a checkdisk over 
the partition, after that it boots ok and all goes well. But on next 
boot it again claim that the filesystem check date is in the future and 
I have to do all over again...

So, I wonder if there is some way to check what dates the ext3 
filesystem is taking into account to see what is wrong there or more 
simple, a way to turn off that checking consistence of the filesystem 
acording to a date on boot?

Thanks again..
