13 <para>Building an LFS system is not a simple task. It requires a certain
14 level of existing knowledge of Unix system administration in order to resolve
15 problems and correctly execute the commands listed. In particular, as an
16 absolute minimum, you should already have the ability to use the
17 command line (shell) to copy or move files and directories, list directory
18 and file contents, and change the current directory. It is also expected that
19 you have a reasonable knowledge of using and installing Linux
20 software.</para>
22 <para>Because the LFS book assumes <emphasis>at least</emphasis> this basic
23 level of skill, the various LFS support forums are unlikely to be able to
24 provide you with much assistance in these areas. You will find that your
25 questions regarding such basic knowledge will likely go unanswered or you
26 will simply be referred to the LFS essential pre-reading list.</para>
28 <para>Before building an LFS system, we recommend reading the following

55 It includes a list of links to excellent sources of information on a
