Fedora core 2 will not properly build LFS 5.1.1 because of the newer
toolchain components included with FC2.  The testing version of LFS is
very stable, only a few weeks away from release as LFS 6.0, and would make
a terriffic system.

Building inside VMWare comes with it's own special issues that might crop
up, but should be doable - I've done it before.
