Create an LFS system with everything you need on one partition.

tar --one-file-system -cf lfs.tar /mnt/lfs
scp lfs.tar remote:
ssh remote
tar -C /mnt/lfs --strip-components=2 -xpf ~/lfs.tar

vi /boot/grub/grub.conf
vi /mnt/lfs/etc/fstab
vi /mnt/lfs/etc/hosts
vi /mnt/lfs/etc/sysconfig/network-devices/ifconfig.eth0/ipv4



You should get the idea.
