My problem in disks, grub-mkconfig & grub-setup connot running on my 
physical system and not shows any messages,
I have many disks, RAID0=6x1.0TB + 4disks=1.0TB-750GB-320GB-160GB.
In VMWare i using only one HDD, one partition from used HDD, i don't want 
use grub-install  on hd0, because i have a WinXP64,
grub-mkconfig in VMWare normaly works it generates config file like as in 
the lfs-book, but it generates with /dev/sda3, on boot process
linux-core finds are /dev/sda2, it's a defferent in boot images/configs in 
lfs-livecd and archlinux-livecd, i think.
All disks is Western Digitall. I thinking problem in disks on RAID0. My MB 
ASUS P5Q Premium with ICH10R + Core2Duo E8600.
After tommorow i builds new system based on ASUS P6T7 WS SuperComputer + 
Core i7, and will test my builded linux on them.
I will write here my result's.
