Chapter 6.7 I have no name!

On page 6.7. Creating the passwd, group, and log Files its reads...

"To remove the I have no name! prompt, start a new shell."

Its the "start a new shell" bit Im unsure about. What does it want me to do? Open a second shell, run the command and close it (all whilst leaving my original shell open) or close shell #1, open a new shell and only use the new one?

If I do close the shell Im working in (at any point, not just this one) will I have to run commands
mount -vt proc proc $LFS/proc
mount -vt sysfs sysfs $LFS/sys

and re-enter the chroot environment. Thats how I understood it, but surely id get I have no name! again..... hence my confusion!

I think I think too much!

Many Thanks
