is it feasible to install linux from scratch(LFS) on a host distro(suse)??... how to make this LFS independent of platform?... can it be made into a liveCD and be installable on systems??

share|improve this question

LFS is supposed to be a barebones installation, so installing it along with a host distro kind of takes the whole point out of doing it. Why not use a virtual machine on the host?
