Building 2.6.34-rc1 kernel on current (BOB's way) ...... LILO ran automatically?

I'm confused by this. I have built maybe 20 kernels with Slack over the last 6 months. I always follow BOB's how-to. This time, building 2.6.34-rc1 on an as-of-today-current system (minus the kernels, as I build my own) something weird happened when I did
make modules install
root@i7:/usr/src/linux# make modules install
  CHK     include/linux/version.h
  CHK     include/generated/utsrelease.h
  CALL    scripts/
  CHK     include/generated/compile.h
  Building modules, stage 2.
  MODPOST 1890 modules
WARNING: modpost: Found 11 section mismatch(es).
To see full details build your kernel with:
sh /usr/src/linux-2.6.34-rc1/arch/x86/boot/ 2.6.34-rc1DAMAN arch/x86/boot/bzImage \
Warning: LBA32 addressing assumed

Added 2.6.33 *
Fatal: open /mnt/damanLFS/boot/LFS: No such file or directory
make[1]: *** [install] Error 1
make: *** [install] Error 2
What just happened?

pretty sure its make modules_install

Yeah, you don't want to be running 'make install'...
