i have exactly the same problem but my situation is still worse. i installed 
SuSE linux LiveEval and the installation worked. i was happy because this was 
my first contact with linux and i already was successfully installing it. but 
i still had no idea how linux actually worked. then i found LFS and thought 
this would be perfect to really learn linux
. now i sit in front of bash and get this error and dont know what to do.
what is this gcc you are talking about?
