Very odd. Okay, if it's missing for some reason, let's get it back.

Enter chroot as follows: chroot /mnt/lfs

this will start /bin/bash. Your old pre-chroot environment won't be entirely 
clear but that's not a big deal right now. Reinstall the coreutils package 
using the same instructions you found in Chapter 6 of the LFS book.

/dev/console won't fix your kernel in being able to mount the partition.

Have a look at your kernel configuration and make sure you have selected the 
right drivers for your hardware. In this case make sure you have the proper 
IDE drivers built into the kernel.
