problem in chapter 6: entering chroot'ed environment

I got to chapter 6 and ran into a few problems.

cd $LFS
chroot $LFS env -i HOME=/root bash --login

I got this prompt


This seems strange. Is this inside the chroot'ed environment?
Here I could not access any other partitions; I had to exit, copied
the MAKEDEV packaged to $LFS and re-enter to get to the next 

Despite uncertainty, I braved through the next few steps. 
Then, after
./MAKEDEV -v generic

I got multiple error lines, amongst them

chown: root: disk: invalid user

kept repeating.

So what went wrong along the way.
