I have basically the same setup, but with more ram:
P3 500, 512 MB, ~20 GB partition

I'm in the middle of working on the lfs build at the moment, so I just
tested glibc-2.3.5 the other day.  It was clean and none of the tests
time out on me, but I believe I did have this problem the first time I
tried LFS.  BTW, apparently, that extra 100 MHz in the CPU is giving
you quite a boost because glibc, gcc, and binutils in Ch.6 with their
testsuites takes 6 hours by itself.  Ouch.  Maybe it's time for new

No idea about the bootscripts characters.  Just wanted to confirm that
that hardware works fine for me.
