Fedora Core 2 is causing the problem, because it is Linux-2.6.x based
and LFS 5 is Linux-2.4.x based. You'll need an older distro, or you
could try building LFS-unstable.
The big problem with LFS-unstable on x86 platforms is that some
applications require patching to compile with gcc-3.4.x. And, of
course, it is UNSTABLE! Caveat Aedificator (Builder Beware).
