1 and 2 have several sub-steps. You have to install several graphic 
libraries, such as libungif, libpng, libjpeg, imlib, qt, gtk+, etc. You may 
need other libraries not related to graphics, such as libz. You should read 
the appropriate LFS-Hint at http://archive.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs-hints/. 
There's a gnome hint and a KDE2 hint. Both of them are current enough to 
guide you.

Athlon 800, about 30 minutes.
For you, I'm guessing about, hum, 6 hours?
