following error was displayed
/tools/bin/bash:no such file or directory

I have the exact same problem

Are you by any chance trying the 5.0 LFS on slackware 9.1?? That's what I'm using and I'm having the exact same problem!!

is you $PATH set correctly??
Code:
echo $LFS
IF your user only has access permissions to the /LFS/tools directory, then root can't use it in the chroot environment............make sure the "root" group can read, write, and exec to it before you chroot .........

Ususally this means you didn't set up the environment properly and /tools/bin/env or whatever has been compiled linked to stuff on your host system. It will work fine in the environment of the host system but as soon as you try to chroot the paths to the things it's linked to don't make sense and so it won't work. The solution is to start again and do it properly. Follow the book. Set up the user lfs just as the book describes and use all the commands the book says. Copy and paste from your browser to avoid typos.
