I'm in getting ready to build my first lfs system, but I have a lot of
read and learning to do first.

Right now, I'm running Mandrake 8.2 on a Compaq laptop that is a
Pentium 3 with 500MB RAM. I would like to install Firefox, but I am
out of version of GTK which also means I am missing lots of other
required files.

Instead of going through the hassle of getting my current Linux system

My requirements are simple.
1. Be able to use the distro to build LFS 6.0
2. X Windows with a good browser, preferabbly Firefox.

Thanks in advance,
