Well, I've successfully installed grub in the second hard disk but, since I  built the new kernel for the first time with the host LFS system in the first hard disk, now the kernel wants to "see" the two hard disks at booting time or it refuses to mount the filesystem in read-write mode.
The question is: have I to recompile the kernel without the first hard disk or there is a shorter way to delete it from its "memory"?
