N🚫NIC documents the cross-compile portion of L1G3R, the point before the Linux® From Scratch chroot, as well as all changes to L1G3R after Lynx2. If you are building your system from an existing distribution, and want to end up with a system capable of running MCJ, the sequence would be to use steps 1-31 on N🚫NIC and then all steps on L1G3R. This is the simplest system that will support MCJ. Further, it is in a form that you can freely own. There is a 32 bit i686 image of the OS here, and a more optimized 64 bit version of the OS here.
The premise of this page is that a network interface controller should not be a requirement that is needed to utilize a computer. Likely you are reading this over the network, but perhaps not.
Here is a version of N🚫NIC from 2007:
