I'm on my way out the door (saturday night woo hoo!) so sorry for the
short response, but I wanted to reply since I'm the one that copied
the "Easy" hint and rearranged it while trying to make my first live
cd's with what was lfs-testing at the time. Before I submitted it I
created a cd by following the hint from beginning to end and it
worked. Of course there could be something wrong in there (s/could
be/theres a good chance there is/ ). Until I have time to look it
over, I can suggest only that you make sure that your /etc/fstab is
pointing to the correct partition, and that your kernel is configured
with support for ramdisks and initial ramdisks (initrd).
