There is an article [rather a hint] on how to make a LiveCD from an existing LFS [Beginners Guide To Creating A Live CD With LFS 6.0]. You could read it thoroughly and try to follow it in a reverse order.
In short, you can make an .iso image from your LiveCD disk [any OS on your computer would probably do - not necessarily Linux]. Then, from LiveCD, you can create partition(s) on your hard drive for / [necessary], for /boot [optional] and a swap partition [optional, but recommended] -- LFS manual is a good reference for how to do this. Create filesystems on the partitions. Mount them somewhere. Mount your .iso image as a loop-back device [read the hint above]. Copy the contents of your .iso image to your new linux partition. Install grub [and probably delete syslinux] and play with /grub/menu.lst file [read the LFS manual for this].
Yeah, all this is very general, but if you take it step by step [stopping and asking more specific questions] you will succced.

Hope this helps


P.S.: Why would one wish to install LFS LiveCD itself into hardisk partition, when one is supposed to build one's own system?
