        When you finish with your LFS you don't have to keep it on the 
same machine. lets say you compile it on a 586, you would be able to use 
it on any other 586 or higher machine. You would most likely run into 
problems if you tried to run it on a 3 or 486 though. putting it in 
another architecture will not work at all.
        If you want to compile it on a fast athlon or p4 and use it in a 
lesser machine there is a way. check out the crosscompiling hint at
