understandable... when the cd boots the machine, 2.2.10 is loaded, etc, etc...

what we're back to, then, is my first (and only, it seems) problem... when 
i boot to lfs (see previous emails for fstab and lilo configurations), it 
seems like as soon as the lfskernel is touched, the machine reboots...

any ideas other than configuration (that's already been checked, recompiled 
and rechecked)...
