With such limited information it is very difficult to help you at all.

I would revert back to using the normal (unmodified) init scripts first 
and see if the problem goes away...

If you want more help, please provide lots more detail, e.g. when, where 
and how the problem occurs. What version of LFS you are using, how you 
have modified the scripts, what is the actual error report/symptoms, 
etc, etc... You get the idea.

Try reading your email like someone who isn't you ;-)
