No, I had a 3 gigabyte hard disk with nothing on it, so I put a reiserfs on it and mounted it to /mnt/new.  I am now generally following the howto.  Note that I am not following it exactly because I'm using different versions of some things.

I do still have all the source I downloaded for LFS for the first time, and I've been keeping them fairly up-to-date via patches.  I'm also downloading KDE via CVS.  Since it changes frequently enough, I'm not going to mess with snapshots anymore.

I'll find out.  I'm generally pretty capable with programs that don't-quite-but-almost fit.  I've fixed bugs and junk in the source code to make it all work.
