Create a 2nd partition on your hard drive and mount it as /home.  Then 
everything you write to /home/lfs will be there.

You will need to remount the partition manually at every boot.

Another suggestion is to *install* ubuntu to a 2nd partition.  It will 
be much faster that way.  Accessing a CD-ROM/DVD is slow.
