After your help that problem was solved and I've booted from my new LFS
glibc-2.2.2 system last night (not without some more glitches with lilo that
meant using redhat rescue option...:-) Still a lot to figure out in linux
for me and LFS is being a great help.

Great work guys. Maybe in a few months I can start answering to some people
