First LFS system

I am going to start my first LFS system. I will be using the source code that is provided by slackware from the 3rd and 4th cds. I have one question before I begin, is there some way of making my LFS similar to slack? Using the bsd-style boot scripts and other things in that nature. I was also wondering a way to use .tbz2 packages instead of .tgz packages like slackware. Any help would be gratefull. Thanks.

I am sure you can ,and it's easy.
These is a Tip in LFS site for BSD-style things, also if you patch your tar ,you could deal tar.bz2.
