Its lilo -b /dev/hdb, or boot=/dev/hdb in lilo.conf
man lilo and man lilo.conf for more info and desc of -U

Yep, if you have one. Make sure you run the lilo thats in your LFS system,
not on your mini linux!
mount /dev/hda /mnt/lfs
cd into the dir that holds your LFS lilo (/sbin)
edit your fstab accordingly if you do this method, see the LFS book for
