Richard, it sounds like you have a problem of a slow Internet connection :-(
Probably your best bet would be to try to get hold of the LFS 6.2 live CD.
Not only is it a bootable host distro suitable for building LFS, but also
contains all the source packages and patches need to build 6.2--nothing
further to download.  The only problem is the Live CD itself is only 
via download AFAIK (~500MB).  Can't you get a mate, colleague, cousin,...
with a faster Internet to download and burn it on a CD for you?


Got sorted thanks you. Had the live CD with the book and I'm now using 
it(I didn't realise what it was!). I'm further ahead than I previously was already
in a fraction of the time. Not a single problem.(Kind of regret not doing it 
the other way as I felt I was learning a lot trying to troubleshoot problems!)
