Question about adduser


Hi I,m building lfs with ubuntu as host (/mnt/lfs)
Code:
mount -v -t ext3 /dev/sdc1 $LFS
,lfs is on external drive sdc. I have built lfs before using the live cd.
My question is when creating user lfs it is added to the Host system is this correct, also the lfs home is in Ubuntu / home/lfs is this correct?

Yes, the lfs user is part of your host (Ubuntu in this case).

This lfs user is only used to build chapter 5, which uses the resources of the host.

Hope this helps.
