I still can't get the LFS build to recognize hard drives other than the 
one it's built on. Here is some output upon booting up:

Immediately after booting up, I did these commands:

#########

proc on /proc type proc (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)

devtmpfs on /dev type devtmpfs (rw,nosuid,mode=0755)

root [ ~ ]# mount -t ext3 /dev/sdb2 /mnt/debian
mount: mount point /mnt/debian does not exist

Here's the filesystem table:

I changed the "ext4" and "ext3" in the last two fstab lines to "auto" 
and still got the error "mount point ... does not exist".


Here's the full output from fdisk:
