 The problem now is in your $LFS.  You won't be able to use it until you
change it to the name of the mount point (/mnt/lfs if you've followed
the book).  /dev/hda8 is the filesystem you are going to use, but the
only time you need to know that is when you mount and umount it.

 So, reread the book about setting LFS.
