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.

Regards again,
