As Rick Shelton said, you have plenty of time. But you should go with system. 
I would not intend to start with BLFS withouth having fix the communication 
problem. This is part of LFS. Go trhough 7.13. in LFS 6.2 for instance and 
configure the network script. Download Lynx and GPM ( general purpose 
mouse ). This will help you to go through BLFS from the beginning. 
Concentrate than in the basics needed e.g. for KDE. You willl not need to 
install everything mentioned in BLFS !
Lynx is a very simple but excellent browser. My advice is really to fix the 
network problem before continuing with BLFS. I have now the experience of 
more than a dozen installations. It is much easier than you are thinking at 
this moment.
Good luck
