I had working lfs with linux-2.4.22 and a needed updates in kernel 
because of networking in blfs and I thought that it is good idea to 
achieve two goals with one motion. New kernel and networking support.

Ok I figured that out. I did not run "lilo -v" after new kernel build. 
Is it necessary? Why does that LFS-4.1 contain a note about it if it is? 
Or am I blind. I think it is necessary. I read it form 
"linux-2.6.0-test11 README"

To use the new kernel, save a copy of the old image and copy the new 
image over the old one.  Then, you MUST RERUN LILO to update the loading 
map!! If you don't, you won't be able to boot the new kernel image.
