Since looking like a fool does not bother me, I would like to ask some questions. You appear to be trying to write CD's in lfs. I am not to this point yet, but I am interested as I hope to be doing the same thing soon.

Your lilo.conf file:
append="hdc=ide-scsi max_scsi_lun=1"

My lilo.conf line concerning the image to be booted is:
I guess the image can be placed anywhere, but wouldn't it be better under /boot? I am asking, I do not know that this makes a bit of difference.
In the append line, you are passing two options to the kernel:
hdc=ide-scsi ( I understand this one)
max_scsi_lun=1 (What does this one do? I have run across it somewhere, but can't find it now. )
I have read that when you pass two options like this, they must be seperated by a double space.

Sorry to be of no help, but I need to be looking at this same thing, and I would like to see you get your's going, so there will be someone to answer my questions.
