So if you dont care to tell me what the basics are i will do the homework. One more thing, if i do have a problem is there some other kind of website etc to go to besides a forum? Im not saying you guys arent being helpful its just that i dont know where to go to tell you the honest truth. so sorry if im bugging anybody.
Earlier in post #15
several suggestions were made to learn the basics. You are not going to learn by just posting single questions or problems. You need to know the semantics and syntax involved so you can perform desired actions plus able to present solid queries that we can understand.
LFS is not something to expect to garner this type of experience(s), the parties involved are expected to already have the necessary experience to accomplish the tasks presented.
Your choice of Gnu/Linux will dictate the quality or depth of experience you will garner. I like to recommend Slackware, sure it may seem difficult to some since Slackware is not a hold your hand distribution. If you want to experience admin and operational interaction with a Gnu/Linux then Slackware would be a good choice. If interested then look at 'Get Slackware Linux
'. After working with Slack a while you would then most likely have the knowledge & understanding to use LFS.
This thread is really convoluted and at some point it is going to be closed. OP you do need to make some decisions. Members have provided loads of recommendations and directions. Decide!
