Hi, I've built the 6.5 LFS. My host was a kubuntu 9.10 under a virtual
machine. All worked fine during the building but now, when I've installed
the new grub and I try to boot the LFS, I get an error like:
cannot open root "sda5" or unknown block(2,0)
Please append a correct root= boot option. Here available partitions:
0b00 1048575 sr0 driver:sr
0b01 1048575 sr1 driver:sr
kernel panic...

My /boot /grub/menu.lst file is:
title LFS
root (hd0,4)
kernel /boot/lfskernel- root=/dev/sda5

The sda5 partition is where I built the lfs, it's correct.
Can you help?
Thanks in advance
