Little lexicon of the NuTyX user's

All the terms used in the documentation are refered and explain in this little lexicon.

Typical installation on a single partition

[Important]This article is target to people who knows what's a GNU/linux distribution is. It's highly recommended to have build a first time the LFS entirely by hand before trying this method. This project is continuously in development, it's possible that you encounter somes errors during the construction.
The article is divide in four sections:
  1. The preparation of construction
  2. The construction of the CHROOT (pass 1)
  3. The construction of the NuTyX (pass 2)
  4. The post-construction and generation of the iso
