Welcome Aboard ;)

LFS, last was what, around 2.3.2?

Yup, that's the general idea =)

Well, if you use the new lilo, you shouldn't have any problems...just
don't take my word for it

And use whatever partition format you prefer, i use this;

/dev/hda1 /
/dev/hda2 swap
/dev/hda3 /usr
/dev/hda4 /home
(same goes for SCSI)

I don't like more then four partitions per-drive.

So, it's really up to you... personal preference to the maximum!
