I have an old laptop that would work great without the bloat that many distros encourage. I have built one other lfs system in the past. This laptop does not have enough room for a host system and the build system, which is why I am planning on building it on my amd64 desktop and then transferring a tarball (or more if necessary) to the laptop. The laptop though is of the i386 architecture.
I saw a great response to a similar situation here.
My question is:
If I install an i386 distro on my amd64 desktop to compile lfs , do I need to use the clfs instructions or can I follow the lfs book?
Thanks for any and all help,
