Get gentoo, it's EXTREMELY easy to boot/install and within about an hour
(on a p2 400) you can have a system useable enough to get the lfs
packages and build them.

My opinions are meant to annoy and offend you! HAHAHA

I tried my very personal approach: I created a chapter 05 LFS and burned
this on CD (with some add ons)
So it ist possible to boot from this CD and continue with fdisk, mke2fs,
.. and the compiling chapter 06 to the hard disk.

I am so happy that you posted this.  I asked the same question a few
weeks
ago, about making a boot disk with just the chapter 5 static packages,
and
using that as a base for the rest of the build.  Have you successfully
built
4.0 like this?  Did you follow the hints for making the CD, or did you
make it
up on your own?  I would really like some more info on this....
