I was thinking more in the lines of using the host system's lilo. Add LFS to 
your debian /etc/lilo.conf. Then 
	cp /etc/lilo.conf $LFS/etc
	cp /boot/<all kernel images> $LFS/boot
	<reboot into LFS>

When in LFS you can run /sbin/lilo again so that the LFS lilo version is 
activated (probably a newer version than the host distro is using)
