I just finished all of the steps!  Rebooted!

During bootup into LFS...

sysklogd and the other log deamon complained about /proc not being mounted,
but clearly it's in the fstab file!

# Begin /etc/fstab

/dev/hda6 / ext2 defaults 1 1
/dev/hda1 /boot ext2 defaults 1 2
/dev/hda7 /home ext2 defaults 1 2
/dev/hda8 none swap sw 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
none /dev/pts devpts mode=0620 0 0
/dev/hda5 /mnt/old ext2 defaults 1 2

# End /etc/fstab

Also, when I try to login as root it gives me an error saying..

"Unable to switch tty to /dev/tty1 for root:  Invalid Seek!"   (or similar,
can't remember)

then throws me back at the login prompt!

Does anyone have Any Ideas on how to fix these problems?

Thanx in advance,
