 I don't know about *root* filesystems, but I've been mounting other 
things r/w with nfs and tcp for what seems like ages, and almost 
certainly using (which is the oldest kernel on this box).  I 
would take a look at the bootscripts first.  In particular, I suspect 
that LFS/BLFS bootscripts might not have been tested with nfs root.
