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.

Why don't you read either Slackware documentation or the LFS one instead of some outdated ones. The reference you used is from 2001. It will not work soon or later. Have you read what segmentation_fault suggested. Check the lilo conf section here http://docs.slackware.com/slackbook:...91;]=lilo#lilo
Fix your lilo.conf file, run lilo. If you have errors when running lilo, post back here with your lilo.conf
Attached file is my lilo.conf which was modified.
After modification, I pressed <Ctrl> O.
This is the first time I use nano. Thus I opened new Konsole and run lilo
I couldn't add lfs. It's still old kernel.
root@localhost:~# lilo -v
LILO version 22.8, Copyright (C) 1992-1998 Werner Almesberger
Development beyond version 21 Copyright (C) 1999-2006 John Coffman
Released 19-Feb-2007 and compiled at 03:08:28 on Mar 27 2011
It look like more optimistic than the first. However it's still a my bug. Did you see it before which I kept it in attached file?
This one took me a long time. Hope me will receive your help to complete it! Thank you so much!
See you tomorrow. Good night!

when Slackware is running. I would suggest to do the following, compile lilo for your LFS and install it, then configure it to install on the superblock of the partition where your LFS-boot directory is (where the kernel resides) and let this chainload from Slackware's lilo. This means to have lilo installed on both, Slackware and LFS. (that's what I would do).
BTW: maybe you'd be better off if you use Slackware for some month and get some experience with it. Then you're ready for LFS.
