I don't think it's quite that easy.  You'll find that adjustments on the 
flour and liquids will change, but other things like yeast may stay the 
same as for a smaller loaf.  One thing I did was invest in one of Lora 
Brody's cookbooks, which show recipes altered for the various different 
ABM's.  In addition to the wonderful recipes, I use it as a great guide 
in altering other recipes I come across.  If you want to share which type 
of machine you have (and size) in addition to the 1# recipe you're trying 
to alter, I'd be happy to see what comes close in my books that could 
give you a start.  I know it's not as easy as doing other recipes like 
you indicated above, though (if only . . . .)
