[lfs-dev] alpha-level iso for current lfs-dev version

I've created an iso that may be useful as a proof-of-concept.

The file is


It is 866M and needs to be decompressed before using.  The expanded size 
is 4.2 GB (not GiB).

It is not much.  It is only a base LFS system targeting x86_64.  It does 
have the sources included as well as /tools and /jhalfs.

After decompression, use 'dd of=/dev/<usb-drive> if=lfs-usb.iso BS=1MB'

The drive should be be bootable.  It has a GPT partition table with two 
partitions.  The first is 1 MiB and is for Grub.  The second is the 
system.  There is no swap partition.

The only user is root and the password is lfs.

There are no guarantees this will work at all, but if you have the time 
and inclination, it will be interesting to see if others can get this to work.

Note that this is NOT suitable for a DVD.

If you have the time and inclination, I'd like to see if others can get 
this to work.
