had a similar problem yesterday installing LFS 6.2 using LiveCD 6.2-4
on Toshiba U200 notebook.  The new kernel could not open the root file system
not recognizing /dev/sda3.  Seems a problem with udev and kernel not populating
/dev.  It was solved by using the .config file from the LiveCD to compile a new kernel,
sense the LiveCD booted and ran nicely on the notbook.  Next boot with the new kernel
compiled kernel booted smoothly and LFS 6.2 ran with no problem.
