13 <para>This part is divided into three stages: first, building a cross
14 compiler and its associated libraries; second, using this cross toolchain
15 to build several utilities in a way that isolates them from the host
16 distribution; and third, entering the chroot environment (which further improves
17 host isolation) and constructing the remaining tools needed to build the final
18 system.</para>
20 <important><para>This is where the real work of building a new system
21 begins. Be very careful to follow the instructions exactly as the book
22 shows them. You should try to understand what each command does,
23 and no matter how eager you are to finish your build, you should
24 refrain from blindly typing the commands as shown. Read the documentation when
25 there is something you do not understand. Also, keep track of your typing
26 and of the output of commands, by using the <command>tee</command> utility
27 to send the terminal output to a file. This makes debugging easier
28 if something goes wrong.</para></important>
30 <para>The next section is a technical introduction to the build process,
31 while the following one presents <emphasis role="strong">very
32 important</emphasis> general instructions.</para>
