Good evening.

Hope someone can help me see something I'm missing, I've been googling all day 
trying to get LFS to boot up and have made some progress but this one is 
stumping me.

Currently, I have at least one problem, which is that the boot sequence fails at 
this point:

Checking file systems...fsck.ext4: No such file or directory while trying to 
open /dev/hda8

What I'm doing right now is booting from the grub command line, a la:

grub> set
... snip some variable lines ...
... snip more stuff ...

grub> linux /vmlinux-3.8.3-lfs-7.3 root=/dev/sda8
grub> boot

My config:

/dev/hda1 is an ext4 boot partition named "boot"
/dev/hda5 is an ext4 partition for "usr"
/dev/hda6 is ext4 for "opt"
/dev/hda7 is ext4 for "src"
/dev/hda8 is the ext4 root partition
/dev/hda9 is ext4 for "home"

I'm using Grub2 v1.99.

Thanks for any help I can get.
