4.1 book work for 5.0 install

I was going to print out the LFS 5.0 book, but I decided against it when I saw it was over 200 pages. I thought I would buy the book as a way of support and good reading material for me. They only offer the 4.1book for sale. Are their many differences between the two(4.1 and 5.0). I would think they would almost be identical. Would their be any reason not to follow the outline of the 4.1 book, would I be missing new crucial information?

After some research, one of the things that jumped out at me was using grub instead of lilo. I am guessing their has to be a lot more then that.

I went to inti-prints with the pdf(version-5.0). They charged me a small fortune, $29. It was nearly 300 pages. IT BETTER BE GOOD READING. :-)
