I've built a LFS 6.0 from a Knoppix 3.6 CD a few days ago and it worked just 
fine for me.

You cann boot knoppix using "knoppix26" to get an 2.6.x kernel.
Manuel: This kernel is built with gcc 3.x, at least on _my_ knoppix 2.6 CD.

So the answer is yes, you can build LFS 6 with current knoppix 3.6 as host 

Just because the message may never be received does not mean it is 
not worth sending.
