You need to download a copy of the book from the web site,
so it doesn't change as you read it. You need to start at
the beginning of the book, and follow each instruction as
you encounter it. I'm reluctant to say follow it "exactly"
since some of them are not exact instructions. For example,
the instruction to partition the disc drive. No one can
put _exact_ instructions on how to partition your disc,
and different people have different ideas about how exactly
a disc should be set up.

That said, you need to start at the beginning, and perform
each step in the order you encounter it as you read,
and conform as closely as possible to the literal content
you read.

You need to do this each time you build, until you become
familiar enough with the process to know where, and by
how much, it is "safe" to deviate from the instructions
as they are written.

If you don't do that, then you are almost surely going to
encounter a problem somewhere along the way, likely requiring
you to start over from the beginning.
