Ticket 2156 - LFS LiveCD is dead

I have changed my copy of the book to read.
  As an alternative to installing a separate distribution onto your machine, you 
may wish to use the Linux From Scratch LiveCD. The CD works well as a host 
system, providing all the tools you need to successfully follow the instructions 
in this book. Unfortunately, development of the LiveCD has not progressed 
recently and it only contains older versions of the source packages, patches, 
and this book. For more information about the LFS LiveCD or to download a copy, 
visit http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/livecd/.


The LFS LiveCD might not work on newer hardware configurations, failing to boot 
or failing to detect some devices, like SATA hard drives.

The web page that is the link target will also need to be updated.

Should I commit this?
