   yes.. partially.
   Kernel config files are first copied to /sources and then the scripts 
access them from there. Solves the problem of isolation caused by 
'chroot jail'.

   Only a small change to FSTAB, I decided it was not that much of a issue.

   With CLFS in the 'boot minimal' mode. The authors recommended the 
kernel config for the bootstrap contain the absolute minimum necessary 
to boot the partition. The 'final' .config would contain all the bells 
and whistles the builder wished.
   Should be add a another parameter to config for the bootstrap kernel.

..suggested format..
#-- If BOOTMINIMAL=1 this is the .config file for the bootstrap kernel
