Well, I don't have all that much choice. All the systems on my main computer are 64-bit, so if I am going to build a 32-bit system there, it has to be clfs. I have Mint Quiana on the laptop (it runs painfully slow!), so in theory I could build a 32-bit lfs locally but I suspect that this distro would be a poor build host in terms of supporting the LFS requirements.

In any case, I like the challenge of doing something new and I haven't done a clfs build before.
