Short answer, no. For a more detailed answer you'll have to wait for 
some one more knowledgable than me to respond, but I can tell you that 
at the very least nptl won't pass its test suite (will it even compile?) 
because you dont have futexes. Be certain, I'm sure there's more 
involved than just a test suite or the 6.0 book wouldn't say that you 
need a kernel >= 2.6.2 on the host to follow the 6.0 book.
