LFS Live CD: want to copy it to the hard drive...

...then boot off the hard drive.


I can't seem to find any information on this. I'm trying to find out if I can copy the contents of the LFS Live CD to a hard drive and boot it after all it's done. I looked through the hints and searched through Google-Linux for a while. Only one hit actually alluded to the fact that it was possible, but when I clicked it, there were no instructions or steps to follow.

Thanks guys.

P.S. I did see the hint from Joseph Dupre on using some scripts to make the build easier, but still want to know if copying the CD to a partition then boot it would work. Thanks.
