i'm assuming that you are about to chroot into the mounted lfs partition. if that's the case then you will not have to login; you will automatically have uid 0. if you're about to boot into your lfs install, then you will need to login as root because you shouldn't have a lfs user set up, and you will need root permissions to install all the software.

if this didn't help, please be a bit more specific as to where you are in the install process (which chapter in the book).
