 Until you get lilo working, you can use the Mandrake boot floppy,
chroot back into LFS, put in a fresh floppy, go back in to the kernel
source and `make bzdisk' which will give you a floppy to boot direct to
the lfs partition.

 Out of the darkness a voice spake unto me, saying "smile, things could be
worse". So I smiled, and lo, things became worse.
