Most likely not.
The compressed sources together are almost 300MB and the toolchain can get up to 500MB so I would highly recommend at LEAST 3 GB of HDD space for making a LFS build.
The final LFS distro will be almost 100MB large with GCC installed. Without GCC and compiling tools you can get it to be almost 20MB large for a basic shell distro.
My suggestion is if you can use another Hard drive or perhaps if you have to, use a 2 GB USB flash drive and only download the sources as needed.
Its a chance but you might be able to pull it off. xD
With a Hard drive that small I am assuming you have a very slow computer and I wouldn't recommend making an LFS distro unless you have at least 1 GB of ram.
If you have less then 1 GB of ram then I would use a swap disk and hope for the best.
