>Regarding lfs 5.1.1, has anyone tried and/or had any problems compiling glibc with the --enable-kernel=VERSION flag set to 2.4.26?  I am on my first try with lfs and am following the book to the letter (no problems yet) but I plan on starting a second run at the book (for practice) on a second machine and playing around with some options as I follow the instructions.
>any comments?
Leave it the way it is, it's the safest option. It won't cause problems 
with builds, but looses the capability if you ever have to revert to and 
earlier kernel version.
