I have finished compiling lfs5.1.1 kernel. All went well. But in the section 
on making the system bootable, I am facing trouble. I am able to run the 
"grub" shell. But running the following commands gave the following output:

grub> root (hd0,8)
Filesystem type unknown, partition type 0xb

grub> setup (hd0,8)
Error 17 : Cannot mount selected partition

My host distribution is Mandrake9.2 and my current bootloader is lilo

Please help....
