If you are on page 29, you are still in the static build section still, and
therefore using the $PATH and programs available on your host system. What
version of Linux is your host sytem? What do you get when you echo $PATH,
and is useradd and passwd in any of those directories?

I am told that you can do the static build as root, but I never tried it.
The user lfs is there to keep you from mucking up your host system during
the /static portion. I would sort out the problem with your commands
