hadn't spotted that x-z !!!!

did it by hand though - and the compile went OK

-except now I am having problems as my LFS partion (well disk) is hdc 
but my current boot partition is on hda

oh well I'll go and read the lilo docs now - and figure out whether to 
set both my Redhat and LFS partions to be bootable from /dev/hda1 (seems 
to make sense)

am I likely to run into any problems with this - especially if I end up 
running different versions of lilo affecting the same boot partion.

Thanks for the help
