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.

I cannot say much about LFS, for as I stated earlier, I have not experimented with it. I have however built a CLFS system.

The CLFS guide "book" can be found here: http://cross-lfs.org/files/BOOK/1.0....1.0.0-x86.html

I built a CLFS system because I needed to compile applications/libraries to run on an i586 system. My host system is an i686.

Btw, there is a dedicated forum in LinuxQuestions.org for LFS (Linux From Scratch). If you have questions, you really should post them there.
