With due respect I would say that:
No one can guarantee there will not be more people on the list asking basic 
questions about 'sound configuration'. That is what the List is meant for 
and that is the plus point about LINUX. As for LFS/BLFS the prime objective 
is learning. I have learnt these lessons which I summarised in my post.

It may seem *basic operational stuff* for a long standing expert like you 
but for a person coming from 'windows' environment and trying to learn 
linux, it is NOT ALL THAT BASIC.

I had ventured to suggest for inclusion of these in the book. But if you 
deem it fit to decline, it is up to you. You are the Boss!
