If you are getting permission errors with the lfs user, it means you've 
missed something. You need to rm -rf $LFS/tools/* and start back at the 
beginning of Chapter 4. When it says to become the lfs user, you do 
that, and you do *not* use root until it explicitly says to. If you do 
get permissions errors, you must go back to see what the problem is (or, 
of course, ask for help here), not just force root. My guess is that 
you've probably missed something else on page 5.3 - you must keep in 
mind everything mentioned in the IMPORTANT boxes on that page through 
the whole LFS book.
