If you have make the mkdir under root, lfs user wont be able to write in it... change the permission on the directory with chmod.
But, if you are new to linux world, don't start with LFS! Try something like UBUNTU and / or FEDORA, understand the linux architecture and how to administrate it before trying to make a linux by yourself!
