After the rm above, hda1 is empty.  How you use it for something else depends.  It will
be difficult to join it with your LFS partition unless you have unused space somewhere
that you can move things to temporarily.  If you sized your partitions well in the first
place, hda1 may be the right size to hold a piece of your new LFS - / or /tmp or
something.  If you have an example of what partitions you have and what you'd like, I
can make suggestions and provide directions.  Without details though I could take a lot
of space describing possibilities that are useless to you.
