Yup, once it's installed just open up /etc/webmin/config and change;
real_os_type=Linux From Scratch
Then just update the module configs for whatever modules you use.
I always stay away from the network intefaces, so i don't worry about
that either way. And i doubt we are going to be compatible with anyone
else anymore... i haven't really looked at the new bootscripts, but
afiak, they aren't exactly like anything else either ;)

Dunno. If you actually make a real LFS Webmin config and submit it to
the webmin team and it gets included in the distrobution that wouldn't
be a waste, imho. Leaving it as 2.2 is kinda a shame really. For a
while i remenber alot of LFS users were running webmin. Most of us on
#LFS when bdumm was still sticking around at least...
