You make my point.  This needs to be in the book but somewhat simplified.

1.  For the purposed of building LFS 6.0, the kernel should be built 
without modules.  mod-init-tools is not required.
2.  I beleive we should be building linux 2.6.x with a gcc-3 compiler. 

In fact the instructions should be something along the line of:

make menuconfig
  -- do not enable modules, include all needed drivers, use generic 
drivers where needed (e.g. not nvidia, etc)

make all

cp arch/i386/boot bzImage /boot
  -- needs a little explaination here

update lilo/grub
