     This is a 2nd letter of mine on this list. The
solutions I got for my previous problem were really
helpful. Rerunning Udevstart did solve the problem.
Thanks for the help.
Now, I m stuck in another error.
When booting of my LFS 6.0 starts, it shows following

Mounting root file system in read only mode     ..[OK]
Fsck.ext2 : File system has unsupported features
E2fsck : get a newer version of e2fsck !
      File system errors were encountered that
couldn’t be fixed automatically.This system cannot
continue to boot and will therefore be halted until
those errors fixed manually by system administrator.  

      When you press enter this system will be halted.
      Press Enter to continue 


 hda3 is my LFS partition.
 I don’t understand why it mounts root fs in read-only

 I have created menu.lst such that I can boot my host 
   distro too. So, if I have to access hda3 to perform
   remedies, I can still chroot in it. 

 Following is my fstab file (In case it needs to be

# Begin /etc/fstab

# file system  mount-   type    options   dump  fsck-
#              point                            order

/dev/hda3    /         ext2    defaults     1      1
/dev/hda5    swap      swap     pri=1       0      0
proc         /proc     proc     defaults    0      0
sysfs        /sys      sysfs    defaults    0      0
devpts     /dev/pts  devpts   gid=4,mode=620   0     
shm          /dev/shm  tmpfs   defaults      0      0

# End /etc/fstab

Kindly help me on this. Seeing errors at this stage is
really frustrating.
I hope there is a way out.
