Build LFS successfully

Hi folks,

As following the manual of LFS and two weeks researching, finally build up my first LFS successfully. In the "8.4. Making the LFS System Bootable", when I issue "grub> setup (hd0)". it says
grub> setup (hd0)Segmentation fault
I fix this by using the "original" grub programs,
 mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/c
       grub> root (hd0,2)
             setup (hd0)
Later, the LFS can boot, while it seems slowly to keyboard response. I will follow up with this. Whatever, first successful building makes me very excited. It's really interesting!

Congratulations on getting it running Did you get any errors when you compiled and installed grub?

It feels so fine to have running your LFS.. I finished building it one or two weeks ago in an Intel Celeron 333 mhz computer at it works so good!.. I want this computer to self-teaching some networking: mounting Apache, SVN, SQUID and that kind of things.. and advanced Linux administration.

And I'll try it again for my desktop computer.. It's some kind of Love to Sufferment XD..
