No.  There are several "Unix-like-environments" for Windows, but from
what I saw of them they will be too minimal for a LFS install.  Your
best bet would probably be to use one of the many Linux-on-a-CD distros
like Knoppix which require no space on your hard drive and have all the
required programs (and then some!) to get LFS installed.

Best regards,
