If you've made a partition on your hard drive to work on then when you unmount it
  all that you've compiled will be saved there.
The problem is when you resume work you need to make sure things are set up properly.
In chapter 5 that just means su - lfs but in chapter 6 you need to make sure that
you've mounted /proc, /sys and /dev
