Thomas Wlater has created a wget file somewhere that you feed to wget and 
wget will download everything for you. I have no idea where that file went 
to. If Thomas can give us the location once again that would be great. I"ll 
include it on the lfs site as well.

A second way can be
A GUI client often lets you select multiple packages for download. Select 
them all and go read a newspaper. But the ftp archive isn't setup properly 
yet. Not properly in the sense of not being complete yet, you would be better 
of using for now which contains  more stuff 
(still LFS-2.2 related files) but at least everything's there.
