>As you can see, rather than installing the system on /mnt/lfs, I did it on /LFS... though I followed virtually every other instruction exactly as it was written in the 6.0 book. My binutils source and binutils-build directories still exist. The problem as I see it is there is no longer a /LFS directory after chroot, so I have to change something to accommodate that...Any help would be appreciated

Did you delete you sources after you build binutils?
