 To answer that last question - LFS.  I have used debian-ppc and
then ubuntu for my non x86 boxes, but the last x86 distro I used was
probably mandrake-7.2.  Is sabayon the gentoo-based hardened distro
you were using ?  Or did you actually install gentoo ?

 Four reasons why I can't do that :

1. I don't have such a tarball.
2. Size - I don't have anywhere to upload large files.
3. Licensing - you would need my buildscripts, and I would also have
to offer to supply you with the source tarballs for a reasonable
time, at least for the GPL'd packages.
4. I'm normally building on x86_64.  You are building i686.

 At this point, perhaps I should mention that we really dislike top

 You mentioned that you didn't like ubuntu : if you have a
fairly-recent ubuntu CD, that should be good enough : install it and
then boot ubuntu, install a minimal desktop instead of the bloated
'buntu desktop (I prefer icewm, but xfce is nearly as useful), your
mc, and then whatever it needs for LFS - build-essentials, and
replacing the dash symlink is my guess.  Check the host system
requirements in the book.
