I haven't looked much at LFS's site, but this is something that I would definately be interested in because of the space restraints on my current computer...(that would be why I opted for a FAT32 distro of slack rather than a full version of slack). All I want is a base OS that can I can run word processing and surf the web with, i don't need any webserver stuff, or crap like that.
as long as you enable ide or scsi cdrom support you can use as many cd drives as you need. For winmodems have a look at http://www.linmodems.org
and see if there is a driver for your card.
It shouldn't be much of a problem installing LFS on a FAT32 partition. Just keep in mind that FAT doesn't have all the kinds of permission support that you may need/want.
