I'd suggest just going through the LFS 4.0 installation. When compiling 
your kernel, add whatever support you will want (PCMCIA, hotplug, APM or 
   ACPI, etc). Then after you have a base system up and running, check 
out the Beyond LFS docs, the hints (hints.linuxfromscratch.org), etc for 
setting up PCMCIA support and APM or ACPI.
