    3535  Linux system. When installing a regular distribution, one is often forced
    3636  to include several programs which are probably never used. These programs
    37   waste disk space or CPU cycles.  It is not difficult to build an CLFS
    38   system of less than 100 megabytes (MB), which is substantially smaller
    39   than the majority of existing installations.  Does this still sound like a
    40   lot of space? A few of us have been working on creating a very small
    41   embedded CLFS system. We successfully built a system that was specialized
    42   to run the Apache web server with approximately 8MB of disk space used.
    43   Further stripping could bring this down to 5 MB or less. Try that with a
    44   regular distribution! This is only one of the many benefits of designing
    45   your own Linux implementation.</para>

    7873  The HOWTO builds a system which is similar to that of this book, but it
    79   focuses strictly on creating a system capable of booting to a BASH prompt.
     74  focuses strictly on creating a system capable of booting to a shell prompt.
    8075  Consider your objective. If you wish to build a Linux system and learn
