This approach severely limits a user's method of operation when
building LFS. One would have to either print out the book or use a
second computer to follow the book. It elimiantes any possibility of
cut and paste. On top of that, it the user is already running 2.6, its
unnecessary. Perhaps this could be one option, but in this case we need
to give the user a second option of updating the kernel in the host system.
