Same as with any other host, i.e. use a spare partition. For many
people, the spare partition will be the one which held the host from
which they built lfs the first time. From a host running a 2.4 kernel,
also upgrade to a 2.6 kernel before you start the build (for preference
compile everything in, otherwise you'll have to build module-init-tools
with the compatability step).
I sense that you don't have a spare partition. In times past I've done
a "side-by-side" install, but it can get very messy and increases the
risk of screwing everything. If you can do a bare-metal recovery,
repartitioning might be in order.
