Which reminds me. I still could use some help (specifically someone with
the appropriate hardware) producing an Official x86_64 LFS LiveCD. ;)

Anyone interested please reply on the livecd list.

I am interested. I have built a pure 64 LFS system that actually works
:) A lot of it is based on Chris Lingard's work, and patched to make
sure that nothing ends up in lib64 (I opted to use just lib to place
all the 64-bit libs).

What is required of me? I am not as experienced as you guys :)
