Is this "just an example" or are you actually saying that /boot under
LFS is empty? How can this be when your kernel images are stored in
there (if you didn't deviate from the book and put them somewhere else)?
Did you mount the correct partitions in your /etc/fstab? I noticed that
you can have the wrong / partition in fstab but still have a correct
bootup if you pass the correct kernel and / parameters to your boot
