Cannot boot into LFS, No NFS server available.

Per Michael's suggestion I changed kernel  /boot/lfskernel-2.6.22.5
root=(hd0,2) ro TO /boot/lfskernel-2.6.22.5 root=/dev/sda3
Result: same error

I then tried kernel /boot/lfskernel-2.6.22.5 root=/dev/hda3
Result: same error

So in grub at boot I used tab completion for kernel /boot/ and it
listed a lot of different kernels (?) but none were those listed in my
LFS boot directory. So I chose vmlinuz-2.6.24-19-generic and got the
same error.

Apparently there is something wrong with the kernel compilition itself,
and re-doing it hasn't fixed the problem.

Perhaps I should start over. I don't know how else to try to fix this
problem.

Thanks,
Brittany
