Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Did you manually verify that the POSIX.pm file exist? If its missing the only advice I could give you is to start over from where perl gets installed during chapter 5. Luckily its the last section in chapter 5.
after checking the /mnt/lfs/tools/lib/perl5/5.8.5 directory, and finding that POSIX.pm does not exist, I tried to recompile perl. That quit w/ errors about 'ld' and something else. I have a feeling that somethings messed up. Thoughts? Otherwise I'll probably start over
more updated. Like 6.1? Will it be easier? No but seriously, you think that'd work better? I was planning on starting over anyway, but... I'll look into it. I'll have to get the error, yes I exited the chroot environment, re-made user lfs(I had to reinstall my host system, due to system wide permissions errors). Thanks.
Sorry bout taking a while to reply, my harddrive that had both my LFS system and the backup on it decided to just wipe itself clean, Ive been reinstalling and tweaking lfs since.
I dont think the new version will be any easier but maybe less trouble as more of the bugs will be worked out. I would of just started back over. You never know but later on down the line you might come into more trouble that will force you to reinstall.
