You need to be more specific - exactly what is the error? Paste the output.

You are not in the right dir. You are supposed to run configure from the 
build directory, not the source dir. It appears you have misread the 
instructions in the book - as stated on page 5.1, each package 
installation instructions assume that you have already unpacked the 
tarball and entered the package source dir. Therefore, the command to 
create ../gcc-build (and of course cd ../gcc-build) should be executed 
from within the GCC source dir.

Bought a (cheap) Widescreen laptop...

never had one of these before.  How in (expletive deleted) do you get
things like jpegs to display with the right aspect ratio in, say, Gimp?

The whole screen is distorted.

I know I'm really dumb too.

 You need to set the resolution to a widescreen one (1280x800 is a
popular one). On LFS, I suppose you have to do it yourself, basically
every other distribution will detect a widescreen monitor and set the
resolution appropiately.

It sounds to me like your X server is misconfigured. You might want 
to verify you got the correct resolution in xorg.conf.

Thanks for this.  It turns out to be slightly more complicated.  The
Intel i810 driver has some deficiencies and relies on the Bios passing
the correct information - it doesn't.  Turns out I need 915resolution a
hack for the video bios.  Then the driver gets the resolution right.
