Dear Ken, I need the new distro from you suggestion ONLY, JUST for the
building of LFS, no for other works/jobs! No problem, if it not have
wifi-possibility or others. I saved the full LFS and BLFS books to my
new-used partition, I will work from its. And I was downloaded all needed
packages, of course. I will install the new host distro, and build LFS. If
I would like work/play any other, then reboot to my Sabayon. Therefore, I
no need full-featured desktop environment. Just a lightweight WM with a
browser to read the LFS book, mc (not musthaved, but I like it) and nothing
else, just I should can build my LFS. I need the host distro just
temporarily, ad interim. Which distro you do use nowadays for build you LFS
system?

Or, it is would be much easyer to my, that if you have a full temporary
system as written in the LFS book, - finished to the 5.35 chapter - then
you pack it to a tar.bz2 file, and send me its download link. I download
it, unpack it to my partition, change ownership, and begin at this chapter
I continue the building of my own LFS system, with chroot and others. This
is a little bit would be alike to the Gentoo, from stage3, I think.

Zoli
