Need advice on distros....?


I am trying to setup lfs on my computer. Now, I still run windows for gaming purposes and most everything else. The purpose of the lfs is to make a music system just for me using the linux-sound.org links (and a few other links i know ) to build a fast, good working music workstation not only now, but for my own use later in life...

Anyway, what I'm wondering now, is to save myself hastle, space, and time, how can I start to compile the lfs temporary system either through windows somehow, a co-distro that runs on windows, or should I just use knoppix or something? Any ideas?

I'd use knoppix. To my knowledge, you can't compile linux code in Windows. There are a few distros that can install in a fat32 environment, though, if you wanna look in to 'em. NTFS support isn't nearly good enough to do that yet, however.

well, it would be a co system, so it would be compiling with a linux kernel and tools essentially (right...?)

I like Linux gentoo, my first distro was Mandrake 7.1. Gentoo is very good because of its portage system you can emerge applications, its very good for lazy people.

well wine didn't work as i had planned, does anybody know of a free version of win4lin or something similar?

it's kind of like an x window login (where you're in linux and login into linux on a different account) but it's basically a windows 98 or windows xp os instead of a linux os

is there anything like this that's open source?
