First Build - in trouble

I downloaded the LFS ISO
I used the LFS ISO as host as I no longer trust the Linux Distro I
have installed and am set to dump it as soon as I can
Single drive Toshiba M40 Laptop with drive partitioned:
HDA1 NTFS Windows Bootable
HDA2 WIN95/VFAT Windows/Linux non Bootable storage
HDA3 REISER Linux Bootable
HDA4 REISER Linux non Bootable storage
SWAP NONE - was advised of potential problems on laptop
I installed LFS into /devhda4/LINUX_FROM_SCRATCH/ after making hda4
No problems on the compiles and only a minor one switching from LILO
menu.lst is as follows:
# By default boot the first menu entry.
# Allow 30 seconds before booting the default.
# Use prettier colors.
color green/black light-green/black
# The first entry is for LFS.
title LFS 6.2 LFS-DIR
kernel /LINUX_FROM_SCRATCH/boot/lfskernel-188.8.131.52 root=/dev/hda4/LINUX_FROM_SCRATCH
# Boot DOS
# Boot Linux
kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/hda3 vga=773 ro
# Boot Memory Test
title Memory Test
LFS does not boot
The other three choices do boot
I have also moved - using 'cp' - all of the LINUX_FROM_SCRATCH directory
into the root of hda4 to see if this would work
This does not work either
I modified 'menu.lst' to reflect the change in location
I used fdisk to make hda4 bootable then made the LINUX_FROM_SCRATCH
directory but since it was already formatted Reiser, I ignored the
instructions to make the EXT2 filesystem
Any advise on what I can try next please?
Does LFS have to be on a partition that already has a working system
I had no problems with the actual compiling of the files
