Very cool.  I've been reading the "Bootable LFS CD Using LILO" hint
printout that you gave me and you're right there are a few things
missing, but my biggest problem was that it requires starting with
an lfs system to build the cd system from.  One of the things that
bugged me in the linuxrc script was the pivot_root call.  I have no
idea what this is.  According to the hint the only nonstandard thing
in this script was the mount_cdrom call.  But there's no explanation
of pivot_root.  Do you know what it is?  Anyway, if you can build an
image, I'd be happy to make some copies with nice labels.

Let me know,
