I reccomend using an installable distro (minislack works well apparently) and use the cd just for the source codes.

From what I've read it's hard to install the livecd to the hard drive.

you can install the lfs livecd on your hard disk by following these instructions, but I'm not sure that it will work on 86x_64 architecture , I try it with the same way as in 86x and it worked successfully but unfortunately its not the case for the 86x architecture,
furst of all u have to extract these following files from the livecd

put them in the target partition formatted w6ith fs-type (ext3,ext2...), let's assume that its /dev/sda8
for exemple,
u can put them any where here, the path is not so important
put lfs live cd under /root that u create by our ouwn

the second step consist in modifying the menu.lst in /boot/gr
ub, don't worry its simple.

the kernel should knew where the the livecd is stored,the target partition... the alternative the sollution is to pass them as parameters to the kernel
u should also specify the initramfs

the implementation :

title LFS
root (hd0,7)
kernel /boot/lfs/linux rw root=iso:/dev/sda8:/root/lfslivecd.iso rootfstype=ext3
initrd /boot/lfs/initramfs_data.cpio.gz

good luck
