Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

What version of LFS are you using? The current version uses Linux-22.214.171.124 and doesn't include any sed's in section 6.7. In fact, I don't recall a sed when installing the Linux headers in any version of the book. Are you deviating from the instructions for a reason?
Before issuing the build instructions for a package, the package should be unpacked and a cd into the created directory should be performed. If you are following the instructions in the book, then you will have downloaded all the tarballs to $LFS/sources (which becomes just /sources in chapter 6). Since you managed to successfully(?) complete section 5, we can assume your are in your chroot environment. At that point, to complete section 6.7.1 you would
tar xf linux-126.96.36.199.tar.bz2
At that point, you would issue the commands as written in the book. But, this is no different than what you did in section 5, so I don't understand how you all of a sudden became confused.
