Headless PiLFS on Raspberry Pi

PiLFS (http://www.intestinate.com/pilfs/) is a LFS port for Raspberry Pi. Unfortunately for those not having HDMI or DVI displays and their associated cables, it's hard to know whether you could access your Raspberry Pi running PiLFS remotely. It's quite surprising that the static IP address is not mentioned in the link above.

This is the static IP address once PiLFS finished booting:
The SSH user is (only one): root
with password: pilfs

I tried to sweep the whole 192.168.x.x IP address back then when I still didn't have (DVI) display to find where PiLFS might configure the system's ethernet, but failed to find any. Hopefully this helps those wanting to try Raspberry Pi with barebone DIY distro and having no access to display for his/her new Raspberry Pi.
