I am using LFS 6.0 online version.

You were right Gerard. I found those files in the /usr/sbin and I
promptly moved them to /sbin. I went ahead with the kernel compilation
step again and this this make modules_install worked fine!


I have a related query, when I did a kernel compilation for the second
time, it did not create a bzImage file.
/pwd$ cp arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/lfskernel-
cp: cannot stat 'arch/i386/bzImage': No such file or directory. But as
I had the lfskernel file at /boot, I ignored this. Do you any reason
for such a  behaviour ( non creation of bzImage?)
