I have built a bootable/root floppy and loopback /usr filesystem as per the
LFS-Bootdisk-HOWTO and converted it over to a boot/root combination disk as per
the Bootdisk-HOWTO.

I can't seem to get it to transfer correctly over to an eltorito bootable CD
though.  Kernel boots fine, but then it asks for the root floppy!  (The floppy
does not, I set the rdev flags and wrote the rootfs.gz file to it, and it works
perfectly!)

I have tried both the LILO and kernel ramdisk methods, both floppies work fine.
 I used 
dd if=/dev/fd0 of=boot/boot.img && 
mkisofs -r -J -b boot/boot.img -c boot/boot.catalog -o ../bootcd.iso &&
cdrecord -v dev=0,0,0 speed=2 ../bootcd.iso

Sorry if this is considered OT, and thanks for any help
