I have built a 32-bit version of LFS from the latest 6.7 book through 
the LiveCD. Although the project is no longer being maintained, it still 

If the project was too time-consuming, I would like to propose a 
console-only LiveCD, maybe with framebuffer, without the LFS packages 
and maybe not linked to any LFS revision in a special way.

That way you may still be able to provide the latest kernel drivers for 
new partition types, sata controllers, etc. And it may be a little less 
time-consuming. If the user needs IRC, you can have a built-in IRC 
console client with a configuration file on home folder already pointing 
to auto-connect to #lfs-support

Just a thought...
