@ ashmita: what kinda installer are you looking for?? a bootable/installable CD can be as simple as a CD with a kernel and busybox with some documentation on what commands the user should run in order to install... something like "partition your disk yada yada, format, untar the file to your root partition, edit the configs, do the bootloader thing blah blah blah"... i mean basically all one needs is the tarball with your pre-cooked LFS in it, and a command line...

i'd actually be surprised if there wasn't an LFS Hint about this topic...
