    I'll be honest here.
    If LFS is too much of a handful for you right now, it might be better to start with a minimal installation of another distro.
    Some that you would want to look at are Slackware, Arch, CRUX and Gentoo.
    None of these do any real hand-holding during the install, and by default you'll have to edit config files by hand to get most things working.
    I'd suggest getting your hands dirty with any one of these before tackling LFS. The experience you gain will make the final project easier.

    You can see what is required on the host system for an LFS build, here:

    Host System Requirements

    If you won't be using a currently installed Linux system to build your own Linux From Scratch system, you can use a liveCD, but it will need to meet the same requirements.

    Note that you are going to have to learn to search the web for whatever you need to get the task accomplished, and you'll need to be very good at following instructions from others before this will ever happen for you.

    Good luck to you with your very worthy project, and do let us know how it all went. Hopefully, you'll be posting your results from a new LFS system in the future!

    That might work for you, but I'd personally recommend using Knoppix instead.

    Let us know how it goes if you decide to use Fedora's LiveCD.

    If you have a distribution installed already, you won't need a liveCD as long as it meets all the requirements posted above. Note that an LFS system can take a very long time to build, depending on how much time you have to put into it, and how technically minded you are.

    Either way, good luck to you!
