OK, so I could use my server for compiling as it has a Pentium 166 and
about 8 Gb of free harddisk space, but how can I produce binaries for
the 386 on that machine? And at which point will I have to move to the
target system?

BTW Is it absolutely necessary to have a special partition for the lfs
system? - It shall become the only system on the 386 besides a few Mb
partition with DOS for setup stuff. I want to completely replace the
SuSE Linux with it.

I know that these are extreme conditions, but I want to use my old
computer for typing some tex documents and email, should be possible
though it has only 8 Mb of RAM and no floppy or cdrom-drive, only a
network adapter.

Hej då, Kaj M.
