There is a good chance your kernel is too old to support >4GB
partitions. This was added in more recent kernels unless I'm totally

I think it's safe to ignore this error you got. When you reboot into LFS
when you're done with your 2.4 kernel you could rerun the test and see
if the newer kernel does the trick.
