I finally got a chance to try the LFS LiveCD 6.3-pre1.

It now hangs (waited at least 10 minutes) at:

Loading iSCSI transport class v1.1-646.<5>iscsi: registered transport (tcp)

The last successful line appears to be:

Uniform CD-ROM driver Revision: 3.20

Is this computer just not a candidate for LFS?
