I downloaded the Live CD, not wanting to risk incompatabilities with host distro. A few quick comments on the tools and config of the LiveCD - simply perfect! From the speedy XFce with Firefox and X-chat available, to irssi in the console, everything is right at your fingertips, ready to go! Made a few attempts on my main machine using a spare partition, but didn't read carefully enough - I made some fundamental errors, such as incorrectly setting the environment back up after rebooting into XP for work purposes. I soon switched to using a spare machine - a headless 133mHz pentium w/128mb RAM. This veritable dinosaur was more than up to the task, even if it was a little slow (76 minute SBU!). SSH into the box made the job as simple as a PuTTY window in XP. After another 'go back and try again' due to a power failure, things went more than smoothly. A big thanks to the people in #lfs-support on irc.LinuxFromScratch.org - they talked me through some recovery trouble after the power failure, and offered great support and lively chat whilst waiting for the dinosaur to compile Smile I've now moved into customizing the resulting system using parts of BLFS, and am happy to have found a use for such a geriatric PC. Two thumbs up! - Ebonhand
