I always do it from knoppix or an LFS boot CD. Jeremy Huntwork is hard 
at work currently building a CD that will be released with the 6.0 book. 
Jeremy's current version of the CD is available at
http://mirrors.angelinacounty.net/mirrors/lfs-boot-cd/ and knoppix is 
available at http://www.knopper.net/knopix if I'm not mistaken.

Testing is quite buildable. Testing is going to be released as 6.0 RSN.
