I don't know if this answers your question, but you do not need a separate partition for LFS. A directory within an existing partition will suffice. I have personally not built LFS, but if the procedure is anything similar to CLFS (which I have built), then you will need about 4GB of free space on the partition. Of course, the final product will take a lot less space than that (probably around 400-600MB).
You will require root-privileges to build LFS.
Btw, what does "tht" mean? Would it kill you to spell out the word(s) instead of pretending like you are text-messaging? Just a mere pet-peeve of mine when I read this forum.
