install LFS already got tools

I dont know what has happened to my LFS backup, Ive been getting kernel errors when I boot it now.

Im going to have to do all of the first book again. I already have the tools folder, does anyone know how I should go about using this to install LFS?
Do I just start at chapetr 6 or is there more to it than that?

I cant beleive im back at the beginning!

Theoretically yes, you should be able to start from the beginning of chapter 6, provided you are still using the same version of the book, i.e you shouldn't use a 6.0 toolchain to build a 6.1.1 system. I say theoretically because I tried doing it once and ran into several problems, probably to do with the way I backed up the tools directory.

Good Luck

Many thanks for your reply.
Ive only just noticed (from your post) that a new version of LFS is out. I think I have LFS 5.1.... 5. something anyway, so I might as well start from the beginning anyway.
