All the files including patches are on the CD (if you are using the
full version of the LiveCD). Your Dad is wrong. If you don't know what
you are doing and don't follow the book, you will have problems. There
are some patches that need to be applied or the system will not build
properly. Connected to the Internet or not makes no difference. You
should be in the sources folder and doing all the building from within
that folder and the appropriate folders for the package you are
