Hi Jasmine,

I did read your reply and appreciate the kind suggestions. I am currently
reading the "Essential pre-reading for life with LFS", reading the LFS book
along with hunting the net for additional youtube videos and other support
avenues dedicated to helping newbies with whatever it takes to get afoot
hold on the build process.

I have partitioned drives in the past and have experience with computer

Some really beginner questions that I'm dealing with (so you get an idea of
what is in the mind of a newbie) are:

1) Is it better to use a host distribution (to begin the build process)
that is Debian, Arch, Slackware or Fedora based verses a fork such as
Ubuntu, Linux Mint or any of the other hundreds out there? I was reading
and watching a video that suggested that Slackware Linux and Arch Linux are
pretty much plain vanilla distros and good for a host build.

2) Also read that LFS may not recognize IDE disk drives during a compile.
My understanding is that LFS prefers SCSI drives but if one digs he can
configure LFS to recognize SCSI drives?

I would be looking for a host that works best with the LFS book as my
number one goal is to simply learn how to build a distro.

Thank you
Wally Lepore
