Well, from this point the init scripts should take over. First on the
LILO command line add init=/bin/bash and see if you can get bash
running. If you can it's probably an init problem. Check to make sure
init is installed as /sbin/init. If it is, compare your /etc/inittab
file to the one used in LFS and make sure they are the same.

Hope this helps,
