Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

IF your user only has access permissions to the /LFS/tools directory, then root can't use it in the chroot environment............make sure the "root" group can read, write, and exec to it before you chroot .........
Ususally this means you didn't set up the environment properly and /tools/bin/env or whatever has been compiled linked to stuff on your host system. It will work fine in the environment of the host system but as soon as you try to chroot the paths to the things it's linked to don't make sense and so it won't work. The solution is to start again and do it properly. Follow the book. Set up the user lfs just as the book describes and use all the commands the book says.
