yes, the current official release is LFS-3.1, yesterday LFS-3.2-RC1 (release candidate 1) was released. The final LFS-3.2 will be released within a week or two.
You need Linux installed to be able to install an LFS system.
you don't need to create a /usr/src , it already comes with whatever distribution you install. You will be creating a /mnt/lfs/usr/src directory during the course of the book. Just follow the instructions and all will be ok.
