No you couldn't just run a dump of my OS on your virtual machine as it is heavily optimized for my hardware, you would just make too many problems for yourself, you seem to be having all sorts of problems with lfs in the virtual machine, would it not be better to clear some space and create a dedicated lfs partition you can use?
umm...well, yeah that make sense; but the real problem is that i dont have any PC...i just have mac. and i cant install your OS at my mac, besides imac, i have mb air too but i cant even install any os except win or mac at both of my computers, i've used uefi for boot, that worked, but that didnt deteceted my bootable ubuntu's usb, and i dont have any cdrom to read any cd, i do have in imac, but it seems like imacs cdrom doesnt work, because i didnt used it from a year...
so, is there any option for me?

If your macs are ppc then booting a from usb is a pain as you have to go through ofboot its possible but REALLY complex you will have to google it, if its one of the newer macs I don't know as I have never used one. if your CD is fubar maybe you can invest in a new external one? or failing all this just save up and get a cheap PC

actually i dont have the ppc mac...i've intel core2duo macbook air, and intel i3 imac...so, what can i do with them?
as macbook air dont have its own cd burner, and imac's do but doesnt work, and it is still under warranty BTW, but i live far away from apple store....
anyways, i am gonna compile the whole god damn thing again, this time at slackware....under the changed virtual environment of virtual box...rather then vmware fusion...
