Today I'm going over my amd64 dual box and just realized why I may have gotten some compile errors.... booting up in dmesg I was getting errors that there's a firmware bug in my bios and my cdrom is not operating properly. I seem to remember that anyone using Linux really should check their hardware to make sure of complete compatibility. Something that will make my next attempt at building the LFS a bit easier I should hope. I've decided my future attempts will be on a pentium4 machine with a single processor.
I'm in the hopes that this action will remove another roadblock to my sucessful building of LFS
