Got the first gunea pig^D^D^D^D^D volunteer for sharing the lfs tarball, 
thanks to Rui Ferreira. His upload bandwidth is limited so I still 
encourage people to do the above. There are no known security risks with 
  using the eDonkey 2000 network, in fact it seems to be a safer, more 
reliable method of retrieving packages. Not to mention the savings in 

http://test.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/packages.html has more info and 
links to clients. Use mldonkey for the console (24x7, yeah) or xMule for 
XFree86. Both are fairly straight-forward to compile, allthough they 
require less used packages (ocaml and wxWindows).

For completeness, here's the link: 

The last part is the MD5sum so you can verify you've got the right 
tarball. I'll offer it for download myself too but my bandwidth is limited.
