What we know so far:
(i) hda3 does have a reiserfs filesystem.
(ii)the kernel isn't able to run either /sbin/init or /bin/bash on hda3.
1. When you mount hda3 at /mnt/lfs on the host system, do
/mnt/lfs/sbin/init and /mnt/lfs/bin/bash exist ? If they don't, is the
directory structure garbled (e.g. /mnt/lfs/something/bin/bash exists),
or is it the wrong partition ?
2. If they do exist, when you chroot to /mnt/lfs, can you then run
