Please read the FAQ and search the mailing list archives before posting 
additional questions... or get on the #lfs IRC channel where people can 
help you more directly. This specific problem has been covered 
repeatedly on this list, and the solution involves you either building 
the book a different way (not recommended) or switching to a different 
host distribution.
