Hmm. I'm going to start on a 386SX-16 (!) soon - what kind of script did you use?
Figured this thing is so old, that it'd be a perfect learner system for
cross-compiling. Even Slackware is shipping a mix of 486- and Pentium-optimized
Perhaps something needs to be put together about packaging up files so you can
burn an install CD of your from-scratch distro. Either Slackware's .tgz, .deb's
or RPM's. Since this is the best way to put together a distro for some special
equipment, an appendix in the LFS book on how to make distribution-style packages
and setting up a package management system would be useful.
