Cross-build testing

Just for a heads up to the rest of the community.  Since one of the
goals of the new cross-lfs stuff is to make a useable 64-bit build of
LFS, and since I have a AMD64 machine with LOTS of empty hard drive
space, I'm working on setting up partitions with each of the major
64-bit distributions installed to serve as a test-bed for our
instructions.  Currently, I have Gentoo 64-bit (which I'm using as my
current workstation until we get our 64-bit stuff ready and useable),
CentOS 4 64-bit (RHEL clone), and Ubuntu Hoary 64-bit.  Looking for
other suggestions as to 64-bit capable distros to test from, so if you
know of more distro's which are currently 64-bit capable, and have ISO's
available for download, drop me a line!

My goal with this is to ensure our new stuff works when being built from
each of the currently available 64-bit distributions.
