First of all, what is the last thing you see on your screen before things

And, for the vmlinuz image, what is it's root directory? In the global part
of lilo.conf (the top part) it reads root=/dev/hdc2 which is the same as
the LFS partition. It looks to me that you aren't able to boot your host
distribution at the moment (unless you pass something like 
LILO: Linux root=/dev/myoldroot
