This is not the right forum for your post. The forum description is as follows:

This Forum is for the discussion of LFS.
LFS is a project that provides you with the steps necessary to build your own custom Linux system.

Please make sure you choose your forum more carefully in future!

As for which distro to use, any will do really. You can always disable any unneeded services.
