If you really need to run Linux under Windoze, try the CoLinux
( project. It contains a kernel fully ported
to run under windows, and once you install it, you just run it and
it's like you have a full linux environment accessed through SSH. You
need image files to use LFS. I just don't know tough if there are
images containing just a minimal required to build LFS; but there
images for Debian and Gentoo that you could use as base systems.

To use X, you will need to have a X server running under Windows (like
Cygwin/X) and export DISPLAY.
