13 <para>LFS is designed to be built in one session. That is, the
14 instructions assume that the system will not be shut down
15 during the process. That does not mean that the system has to
16 be done in one sitting. The issue is that certain procedures
17 have to be re-accomplished after a reboot if resuming LFS at
18 different points.</para>
