not a chance in h3ll !!!!!!!!

anyway..... it would probably be quicker downloading a distro than compiling LFS.
plus, when LFS is finished.. (took me 2 solid days, which is enough time to download half a linux distro) all you have is a bootable disk with a compiler on it.

then you have to follow anouther book called BLFS (beyond LFS) which helps you compile XFree86. and a windowing manager.... and then you need alll the networking stuff....

either download a linux distro or buy one.
i paid 10 for Redhat9 which was deliverd to my house 3 days after ordering.

then i used redhat 9 to download knoppix (live linux distro. only 1 cd)
and fedora core 1. (3 disk distro)

and i only have a 56k dial up connection.
