phylogeny is all Greek to me.

I could send you a bootable LFS CD.  I use it to install LFS on empty 
machines and just let a script run overnight.  You still need to set up a 
kernel, lilo.conf and fstab before the new system will boot.

Its got lynx, LFS source, book and hints on it.

You would then become another of my unofficial and unpaid testers.
