Bruce and Ken. Thank you very much for your well thought out responses.
1. Where I got the 80Gig minimum is simply adding up the suggested partitions from the 7.5 book.
Since I've never built a system from scratch ( except a version of CPM... back in the day), I find that I am doing a lot of reading and then reading into some of the texts and documents.
2. What I have is a 40Gig Mac Mini , completely devoted to this task and a second 30Gig HD that will become the LFS system.
By the comments made here, I feel that I can proceed.
3. I am going to follow the 7.5 book as closely as I can as much of this will be simply educational value. I want to see if I can do it, if it will do what I want to do and lastly have a bit of fun messing about with it. That and 'meeting' new folks of common minds.
