You are right. The kernel on the cd depends on your hard disk

Check your /etc/fstab, and your boot loader. In the loader (grub or
lilo) you have to specify which is the root filesystem. That should be
the cd.

I gather what you did was to copy the entire working LFS onto a CD? You
also have to make sure that your kernel has iso9660 _compiled__in_. Ext2
or ext3 can be a module.
