Question LFS chroot enviroment user confusion....

Hi. I'm now on to 6.4. Entering the Chroot Environment of the LFS-BOOK-7.1.pdf and done a sudo into the chroot enviroment.

At the section for Creating Directories, do I need to keep using sudo in front of all commands?

To clarify, I am follow the book and not straying.

My host system is Debian Squeeze and I intentually set Not allowed to login as root, forcing the use of sudo.

I know I seen the answer while reading but when I went back to varify what I had read, I was unable to relocate the section or site that I saw it.

Can someone please help refresh my memory or inform me of changes that I may need to do?

Thank you all in advance.

Complete the remainder of the book in chroot, just run the commands as they are in the book without sudo, you wont be logged in as lfs any more now.
Note that the bash prompt will say I have no name! This is normal because the /etc/passwd file has not been created yet.
