i have a question about the lines in the sample menu.lst

# The first entry is for LFS.
title LFS 5.1.1
root (hd0,3)
kernel --no-mem-option /boot/lfskernel root=/dev/hda4

my question is about the last line above:
what does this root=/dev/hda4 mean ?
i ask because i have no hda4 partition, should i change this value ?

and my second question is, did i have to change the menu.lst because i use
another partition for /boot than for /, i use hdb1 for /boot and hdb2 for /
