Getting Packages off the LFS Disk


Ok I got to 3.2 LFS 6.1.1 chapter 3
how do I get the packages off the disk?
and load them?
I will write a How To Book, if this ever gets finished, The Info I have read so far is sadly lacking. And if it wasnt for you, the people here that really go out of there way to help. There would be a lot of sad people.
One more question, if i turn off the comp now do I have to redo what i have allready done.?

The packages are on the CD in the /lfs-sources directory. You want to copy them to /mnt/lfs/sources (or $LFS/sources - same thing). Just issue this command:

Code:
cp -v /lfs-sources/*.* /mnt/lfs/sources/
Now you can watch as things copy over. Best of luck going forward!

I must assume that /*.*/ means something that I type in ?
I typed in.
cp -v /lfs-sources/*.*/mnt/lfs/sources/
cp: missing destination file.
At this stage I can only copy what i see I cant figure out what i am supposed to do, like if /*.*/ is my hda? or a file etc?

Missing a space between *.* and /mnt/lfs/sources

Also one asterisk would have done the trick, too:

cp -v /mnt/cdrom/lfs-source/* /mnt/lfs/sources

That's just my Windows imperfections slipping through.
