is /dev/tty10 a typo, or does it really say that ?

 You say you can boot with a SuSe CD - you're using that to boot into
LFS ?  And it is functional on all 6 ttys ?

char major 4, mode 600 ?  In that casse, whatever is trying to access
/dev/tty1 (getty?) might be either a symlink to a non-existent file (did
that myself tonight on a BLFS config file) or (more likely) linked
against something that isn't there now.

 I'm assuming that in the base install whatever brings up eth0
(S20network ?) is the last thing in rc3.d.
