Salutations to you Mr.Gerard Beekmans!!!
You are wonderful!
I shouted Yo! when I booted up my first LFS :) 

just to have fun I have its name as Freak :) !!

Thank you  so much of support, there's lot of valuable lessons I have
learned from you.

For the above problem, I removed the /etc/inittab; from the LFS
chapter,copied exactly the contents and moved it to /etc/inittab and
this solved the issue. ( my typing of /etc/inittab would have been
wrong in the first place)

Thank you again.

This hits on me and you kept on proving it :)
