Can you tell that I am a newbie?  I was compiling the kernel for a pentium 4 
processor and I don't have a pentium 4 processor.  Well after reading all of 
the options, etc during the menuconfig, I picked the right processor and 
finished compiling the kernel.  I rebooted the machine and hurray!!!! I now 
have a functioning LFS 6.0 system.  Now on to BLFS.

Thanks for all of the help.
