1) Please don't top-post - it's much easier to read an email from top to
bottom, than bottom to top
2) Please try to have your email client post in plain text; again, it's
much easier to read
3) The syntax for chown is 'chown user:group' not 'chown group:user'
4) Do you have an entry in /etc/hosts for your 'lfs' server?
