Sorry I'm not quite clear on this point.  Whether you
suggest to further partitioning /dev/hd6 and create a
partition for /boot, swap, / and /mnt/lfs
respectively.  On FC3 box /boot /swap and / already
exist.  Please advise.  It is also my intention to
follow the LFS Instruction as I'm a newbei on LFS

If I run "yum update e2fsprogs".  It is still FC3
package.  Maybe I can get it from its website. 
However another question comes.  Can the latest
version work on FC3 withou conflict?
