It's been a long time since I head of anyone still using 2.4.x.
When LFS first transitioned to the 2.6.x kernels, we didn't have a way
to build it other than to load a commercial distro and build from there.
Of course someone did the first build to 2.6, but that was back in
2003. We don't have a build path for 2.4.x->2.6.x and we now specify at
I'd recommend getting ubuntu, fedora, suse, or another commercial distro
and load that. From there, you can build LFS-6.5 or LFS-dev.
