did i skip ahead?

ok, so i use cfdisk to make a 9gb linux partition and a 256 mb swap partition

then i mke2fs and mkswap, export LFS and mount everythin etc

then i copy the unzipped packages (i'm skipping the sources part, i'm just gonna put the patches in source and the untarred packages in tools) and then i link tools to /, make a new user and chroot in

then i start to build the temporary system (chapter 5) by installing binutils

now, i didn't list EVERY command, but is there anything that i missed or skipped? i have the printed pdf version in a binder and a tablet to write down errors in i didn't think i skipped anything, but i just wanted to verify....
