The alfs profiles take you from chapter 5 to about chapter 8 or 9. The
steps are

1. Install nALFS - a small executable requiring libxml2

2. wipe your partition (It likes to make the dirs) or move everything to
non standard places, and proceed up to compiles ($LFS mounted, etc.)

3. Stick the profile in your old system, and configure it (edit one
config file)

4. Use the wget.lfs script to get the packages
Usage ./wget.blfs <destination dri, e.g. /usr/src> <url_list>

5. When thoseare downloaded, just start the thing, and everything gets
