I went to the Automated LFS web site at:
on the right side of the screen under the heading "Read" I clicked on "nALFS Users Guide"
I read all the way through that and the last thing is nALFS Installation and Configuration and then Quick Start.
That is where I ran into trouble, the users guide wasnt much help.

Is there a better place to look and read about ALFS? If so, could you send me a link to it?
