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?
