It will be original static version of LFS (part II, chapter 5).

I'm afraid that it will compile and run, but programs compiled when
kernel 2.0.x was running won't use new capabilities of
kernel 2.4.x (API changed). But maybe compiling with new kernel headers
will do the job... But I found somewhere an advice to use the same kernel
version during compilation (?).
