This is what I WOULD suggest:
Boot your LFS machine up with the LiveCD.
Wait a few minutes for it to completely boot to the shell.
Use your Windows machine to check your router's (or equiv) dhcp table to see what IP your LFS machine retrieved from DHCP.
Download a program call "putty". A simple google.com search of "putty ssh" to get it. Install this onto Windows.
You can now use this putty program to SSH into your LFS system. Use Fullscreen to make it seem your monitor/kb is hooked to LFS machine.
Lookup SSH if you dont knwo what it is. Its a great tool for shell on a remote computer. It's almost like VNC, but for shell.
NOW. The reason why I can't suggest this almost perfect plan... The live cd requires you to answer a few questions before it boots up. Timezone, language, keyboard layout, etc... I don't think the SSH server is running at the time of these questions.
Theoretical Solution: Edit the boot process on the LiveCD so it doesnt ask these questions on boot. Hard code your responses int th code, recompile, reburn to make new LiveCD. --- This I have no idea how to do, or if it can be done. Its just an idea that popped into my head.
Thats your REAL showstopper here. The LiveCD asks these questions before the system is even booted up. This would prevent any type of VNC or SSH type program/server from running.
BUT! I do not know from first hand about this bootup process. I've only booted from this LiveCD twice. I guess it would be a good idea to try to SSH to the LFS machine before you try anything else.
Hope I helped.
