I have tried to use Knoppix to build an LFS5.0 system on a machine with only
1 linux partition but I had to give up because GCC (ch6) did not compile
(make complained A LOT about /dev/null having no permissions and apparently
hung in an infinite loop and I had to kill it).
So I did the job on another machine with a free partition using LFS4.1 as
host system and everything went smoothly.

Is there some trick to make things work with Knoppix or was it just bad
luck? (I sticked to the book in every detail)
