Redmond Linux is afaik unable to build an LFS system. It doesn't even
contain development tools IIRC (I read a review today) and that is the
most basic requirement for building an LFS system.

Redmond Linux, because it's /usr/lib, not $LFS/usr/lib.

Are you sure you're in the $LFS/usr/src/bash-2.05a directory? Do you
have the /bin/sh -> /bin/bash symlink or a binary /bin/sh?

You should install the ncurses libraries from the CDROM that came with
your Redmond Linux distribution (although I doubt if they ship it), so
they end up in /usr/lib. Installing ncurses on your LFS system will be
dealt with later in chapter 6.

Why not use Redmond Linux or another (less windowish) distribution?
That's also not Windows, but may be a little easier for you to work
