no need.... I have my trusty LFS system :-)
I built this system so that I could MAKE a boot cd (w/ an auto-lfs).

Yeah, that could be the problem w/ the bootup. I also put a new kernel
in there, and I might have done something wrong there (I put lilo on a
floppy, and didn't run lilo again after the new kernel, but It wouldn't
work with the lilo that's on my MBR either... after doing the usual
copying kernel to /boot of main system and running lilo)
I chroot'd into the system from my main one, and ran "man gzexe", and I
got the same thing. It seems like it is getting stuck in some kind of
endless shell loop. I read over the man pages again (on my main sys.),
and it looks like gzexe makes a script linking to gzip, and it also uses
tail, chmod, ln, and sleep. I think that I may have gzexe'd something I
shouldn't have, and that's why the loop started.
ooh well, I had backed up the fresh LFS system before I tinkered with
it, so I just re-formatted, and extracted the backup. I'm gonna try
again,this time being a little more carefull ;-)
P.S.- How do you make a tar archive of, say everything in /mnt/hdb1, and
have it unpack as the root dir (instead of mnt/hdb1/usr, mnt/hdb1/root,
