    linux from scratch... method?

    Is actually making a new separate toolchain as is done in chapter 5 of LFS really necessary? At first it would sound like you could just compile the software and install it to the hard drive, and just plug in all the necessary files. But it seems you can't just do that... for one this book mentioned some weird stuff about ld the dynamic linker. Can anyone explain why ch 5 would or would not be needed and how this complicated ld thing works?

    How things are going to be done

    Even I used to wondered why we need a separate static environment before building the real system..
