    I kinda agree and disagree with this! I remember when I was putting together my LFS system I often frequented another linux forum that does have an LFS discussion area.

    However, I'm not sure if there are enough LFS users out there to justify it.

    I am about to start on a LFS project. And I personally don't think there is much point. First of all thaere arent really that many LFS users out there, and second of all, the handbook is pretty good, so I don't think there is much need for it.

    I wouldn't mind having an LFS forum here, but keep in mind that the single best place for your LFS problems is the lfs-support mailing list. The guys on there are real good about helping people out.

    Until I upgrade linuxforums.org to phpbb2.2 when it is released, there is not enough space on the main forum index for as many distro's as I would like to include, hence priority will be given to the distro's with a substantially large following and active userbase existing at linuxforums.org. When i do the upgrade to phpbb2.2 I will include sections for a lot more distributions, including Arch and Yellow dog (suggested previously).
