I started reading LFS and I realized I had a lot to learn.
That's where it really is helping me. The reference material and links are great.
The writers tell me up front, I'm not gonna get too far if I don't know the prerequisite stuff.(Like bash)
I installed Virtual Box on a Debian Squeeze machine, and then installed the same cd of Deb into Virtual Box, only without X. And...I 've got a lot to learn. I had never realized that linux is really just a kernel. (understatement but true). To add stuff to it I 'll have to learn how to work with modules and compile kernels. I'm kept busy.
I'm trying to learn how to ask intelligent questions in forums and groups. It seems that most everything I need to learn is already online. I have to take the time to dig.
I can't do LFS if I can't unzip and handle files and directories and permissions and modules and kernels...and on and on. Its a great learning experience.
