           Summary: Don't use cp -H in chapter 5 - kernel headers
           Product: Linux From Scratch
           Version: CVS
          Platform: PC
               URL: http://archive.linuxfromscratch.org/mail-archives/lfs-
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P1
         Component: Book
        AssignedTo: lfs-book at linuxfromscratch.org
        ReportedBy: gerard at linuxfromscratch.org
         QAContact: lfs-book at linuxfromscratch.org

Host system's cp might not understand the -H option. Mandrake 8.x is reported to
have fileutils-4.0p that doesn't have the -H option built-in.

Revert to these commands instead for the chapter 5 - kernel headers. Chapter 6
can remain unchanged as we install a recent coreutils now that does know about cp -H
