Immigration Issues/L1 validity after status change to H1B


I have L1B with Company B and it's valid till Aug2008. I also applied for status chnage to H1B with company B. It got approved now and will be effective from October07. But now i want to continue with company A (thats with L1B) atleast till May 2008. Is this OK?

It is not OK.  Your status will change on October 07, once your H takes effect.  You should either ask Company B to withdraw your H1B or leave the country and come back on your L1B to keep your L1B status.
