Obviously it depends on personal circumstances.  Since my first LFS boot I 
have been proceeding without the host system.  I have the BLFS (and LFS) 
books on my pda (gotta love that Plucker app!) so I can read them sat on 
the bus, throne etc.  I have sources on a partition of a hardisk that I 
can mount to access.  All of my make-install is done in LFS with no 
reference to the "host system".

There are some important bits at the start of BLFS book about the post-LFS 
config, but this was done in one session.  I am then free to boot (B)LFS 
whenever I have time to install a couple more packages.
