Don't ask people to email you off the forums, please. That kinda defeats the purpose of said forums. Also, you're quite likely to find yourself being spammed if you leave your address up there.

HylianHero7, its really easy:
1. Go to www.linuxfromscratch.org
2. Open the LFS tab
3. Read online or download the manual (stable version)
4. Read the book, the book is good!

Good luck!!!

Cool

Indeed, HylianHero7 !
Take all the advice above and allow me to
summarize a simple path to success.

Get the LFS 6.2 Live-CD, and build from it.
All you need is to use your Suze knowledge
and tools to split one hard disk partition
to make room for your work. This ain't hard.

Once you do that; Remember these three points.
:: Follow instructions especially when it asks
you to DELETE the source once you have compiled
and installed the packages.
:: I recommend you also create a small separate
SWAP partition in order to use the,
linux resume=dev/hd* feature of the
:: I recommend you build outside X-window environment.
Just a console will do;; Remember CTRL-ALT-Fn to
open multiple sessions.

Patience and Precision rules over Luck.
You can't fail; If you screw-up, just start-over
and be happy you might have learned new skills.

I did.
