Finally got lfs-6.2 running on my box. I originally had a problem
booting. I am using the GRUB that was originally installed on my 1st
drive by Ubuntu so all I had to do was add to the existing menu.lst
in /boot/grub in my Ubuntu install. I at first had an issue with typos
on the root device and then it would not find the kernel in /boot until
I changed the kernel statement from what was in the book,
"/boot/lfskernel- root=/dev/sdb3" to "/lfskernel-
root=/dev/sdb3". I had made a separate partition for boot. Now the only
problem that I'm aware of is my delete key doesn't work, although I
think I may have fixed it just haven't had time to boot lfs to check it.
Thanks for your help.
