alfs-discuss at is a mailing list for
discussing the automation of LFS ;)

Doesn't matter much, which one, this list is pretty dead (well, noone is
talking on it, aka dead, no offense to anyone :)

Yes, you can copy an existing lilo.conf (or create a new one) and use it
like on a regular system, it's why i mentioned 'lilo -C
/path/to/new/lilo.conf' in cause your lilo.conf isn't in /etc/lilo.conf

If your interested i have a full static(aka everything you need to enter
chroot) and dynamic (aka a full blown LFS-2.3.6 i386 system) at

All you would have todo, is bootup with a floppy, mount the HD and untar
it.. you can always create a bootdisk with all the modules (or make it
monolithic) on another box, also.
