It looks like you have gimbal lock on the foot bone. It's where two (or more) of the rotation axes are co-planar (in the same plane). To fix this you need to invoke the Record Pivot Rotation command. In LightWave 8 press 'P'

And because this command activates the bone, press control-r to deactivate it.

My suggestion would also be to figure out how to rig using the standard LW IK.
IKBooster is a more advanced form of IK and if you arent real familiar with it you could have issues.
Kurv studios (www.kurvstudios.com) has some good videos on how to properly use IKBooster. :)
