Hello again, I was just rereading your original post as I didn't get as far as
the bottom the first time (naughty me).
You don't need to use the lfs_next_to_existing_systems.txt hint since you have
two partitions. This hint is for folks who only have one partition. You have
mandrake on hda and indicate above that lfs is on hdb -> TWO DISKS -> at
least two partitions. This is a normal, straightforward by-the-book build. No
need to make matters more complicated than necesarry.
I suggest you follow the book as closely as possible. Create the lfs directory
on /mnt as suggested and export the environment variable LFS=/mnt/lfs. The
fewer things you introduce deviating from the book, the less likely it is for
things to go wrong, and the easier it will be for others to troubleshoot your
installation if things go wrong.
