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.

i came accross this linux from scratch froma friend of mine and i must admit that this is the most challenging thing that i have ever done on linux systems.
i am having trouble extracting gcc 4.1.2 on my lfs build. i am finding this strange because i successfully extracted binutils and installed it without any problems. i had some screenshots but i cant post them here.
i am currently building my lfs system on virtual box 4.1.6. when i run the "df" command, i see that i have 3.5gb of space remaining.
i also dont know whats wrong. cause it starts extracting without any issues, but from nowhere, these error messages start showing up. im installing via the lfs live cd 6.3. could it be cause im using an old lfs build?
Yes that cd is out of date now there are other distros you can use as live cd or from an installed linux OS. Also You would be better following the new book
guess i'll have to use the newer version then. unfortunately, there is no lfs livecd for 7.0. how can one build the lfs using the latest packages on a virtual machine? is there another technique
