I built LFS 2.4 from Debian potato on a 486DX2/16, admittedly with lots of
scsi disk. I even built qt/kde on it, but only ran it once!
This was the last system I ever had with a 'distro' on it, all my subsequent
systems have 'evolved' from that base. I don't believe in paying money for
software - or even hardware if I can get away with it!
Many of us use LFS as a firewall/router on 486's. Isn't Ian Molton trying
to run LFS on a PDA?
As to a 'book recommendation', I would think something along the lines of:
'If you haven't already obtained a working Linux you probably shouldn't be
trying to build LFS. But if you insist, we recommend Chris Lingard's CD
version of LFS obtainable at...'
