I installed LFS on another disk with nothing else on it.  The distribution that
I created it from does not reside on the same disk.  I want to take the LFS
drive out and put it in another machine.  I would like to boot the machine from
the LFS disk.  I don't want to boot LFS from the same machine that I created it
on(dual boot).  In the mini LILO howto, it explains a way of taking out the
disk you built a distribution on and placing it in another machine.  I was
wondering if anyone knew a more elegant way of doing this.
