13  <para>This chapter shows how to complete the temporary tools to create
14  a minimal system that will be used to boot the target machine and to build
15  the final system packages.</para>
16
17  <para>There are a few additional packages that will need to be
18installed to allow you to boot the minimal system. Most of these
19packages will be installed onto the root or in /usr on the LFS
20partition ($LFS/bin, $LFS/usr/lib, etc...), rather than /tools.
21However, since you are still installing these packages from the host
22system, these packages will need to be installed using the "DESTDIR"
23option with make.</para>
24
25<para>More detailed info about DESTDIR needed here...</para>
26
27<para>Also, since you will need to create directories and install
28packages in them in $LFS (and of course don't want to use root to do
29this, to avoid damage to the host system), outside of /tools and
30/cross-tools, you will need to temporarily change the ownership of
31$LFS to the <systemitem class="username">lfs</systemitem> user. Run
32the following command as <systemitem
33class="username">root</systemitem>:</para>
