I was looking forward to doing it this week, but I need my slack cd from my friend so I can boot into my system to resize the current filesystem and partition and make an extra one to make the LFS build on. Ah well, I'll get the cd tommorow hopefully. Thats awsome that you got it working. Why did you use 2.4.8 instead of 2.4.14 out of curiosity? Any big roadblocks you ran into, or was it fairly straight forward?
If there is a way to change a partition size and filesystem size without using a cd that lets you boot into it (like slacks) please let me know. I have no room to just make a new one, so resizing the current one (and I only have the one on the hd right now) requires being somewhere without /dev/hda1 being mounted. (sorry if it's a bad explanation hehe)
