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.
