 2.2. Creating a New Partition

s/If you have an empty partition or enough unpartitioned space on one
of your hard disks to make one, using this for your LFS installation
is recommended. /The recommended approach to building an LFS system
is to use an avavilable empty partition or, if you have enough
unpartitioned space, to create one./

itself will not take up this much space. A large portion of this
required amount of space is to provide sufficient free temporary
space. Compiling packages can require a lot of disk space which will
be reclaimed after the package is installed./which will require

s/The swap partition for an LFS system can be the same as the one
used by the host system, so another swap partition will not need to
be created if your host system already has one setup./The swap
partition for an LFS system can be the same as the host system's, in
which case it is not necessary to create another one./
