That's cool, but if you plan to use a seperate boot
partition for LFS, be sure to
mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/lfs/boot
You would do this right after the "create directories"
script in at the start of Chapter 6, before continuing
with the build. If this is confusing, then don't use
a sep boot partition. Just follow the book's
directions for using one partition. Get fancy next
> How to set up lilo in this configuration ??
Understand that there are some subtle differences
between installing from a CD host and installing from
a regular "installed" host. If you are not
comfortable with that, you may have better luck just
following the book exactly for your fist time.
To answer your question, you will install lilo from
inside the chroot enviroment in Chapter 6. You will
build the lilo package, edit the lilo.conf, and run
lilo to write to /dev/hda in your situation.
