>From your progress reports I was under the impression that you had completed 
LFS-5.0 - correct me if I'm wrong. If this is the case, why are you still 
chrooting into the LFS system? Secondly, this seems to be confirmed by your  
bash prompt (version 2.05b). If this is really the case, then it would seem 
you are already in LFS and you may not even have a /mnt/lfs directory there. 
Could be a foolish mistake. Otherwise forgive me for stating the obvious.
