At the time when you login, is the root partition mounted in read-write mode?

try this approach:

LILO: lfs init=/bin/bash

when you have your bash prompt, run the scripts in /etc/rcS.d and /etc/rc3.d 
manually, one-by-one and see if everything worked. If you ran mountfs, check 
if / is writable by running something like this: echo abc > outputfile

And so forth.
