partition permission

 Hello,

  I last built lfs around version
 2.3.7 or 2.4 (When kde-2 was first
 released as beta).
  Now I build again with my same
 suse-6.4 which uses gcc-2.95.2 &
 glibc-2.1.3.
  I mounted a 2 GB partition on
 /lfs and a 1.5 GB on /lfs/source.
  My problem is that root has
 limited permission somehow.
  If I run a script on a different
 partition than the boot partition,
 I get "permission denied".
  This means I can't unpack my
 sources to /lfs/usr/src as
 ./configure won't run.
  So, I untarred to /usr/src/lfs
 and went from there.
  Lfs-static is installed and now
 it is time to chroot, but guess
 what,

 prompt:~# cd /lfs && chroot /lfs /usr/bin/env -i HOME=/root TERM=$TERM
/bin/bash --login
 chroot: cannot execute /usr/bin/env: Permission denied

  I know, it's just like my car;
 I'm not to be trusted as a user to
 open the hood, right?
 (If they're so concerned about my
 safety, I wish they would come
 over to my house and do it right.)
  I've been all through rc.config
 (the main config file) and
 everywhere else I can think of,
 (permissions are easy,local,) and
  I can't figure out how to get
 real super-user priveledges.
 I had the computer going the way I
 want, but I had to re-install suse
 from scratch and I forgot how to
 un-fetter it.
  I may have asked this a couple
 years ago, but can someone tell me
 how I might get full access to my
 own machine?

  Oh, by the way, yes Gerard,
 kde & netscape are broken browsers,
 but only with version 3 books. >;(
  lynx is ok if a bit tedious,
 but ol' Mac 68k is still best.
  Opera wants to sell me something.
  Any other gui browser ideas?

 Thank you,
