My point is that you now require the old partition for use with your LFS
installation. Every bit of LFS philosophy I have within me doesn't agree
with it. We want to do everything on our own new partition without
depending/using anything of the host distribution whenever possible. If
there is a choice between storing tarballs on the Redhat partition or on
the new LFS partition, I will always choose the latter.
