Comment (by justin at linuxfromscratch.org):

 I wanted to add some more information to help us find the problem.  I
 created a 6.1.1-4-dm (meaning current /livecd/branches/6.1.1 with the
 patch available here
 http://linuxfromscratch.org/~justin/livecd-6.1.1-r1445-dm-1.patch).  This
 LiveCD works fine on any i686 system, I tried it, started Xorg, no
 problems.  It also fails to boot on my i586.  This time instead of
 freezing at "Starting init...", it freezes at "Setting up the loopback
 devices..." and doesn't continue.

 In case I really fscked up the patch, here is the tar/bz2'ed lfs-livecd
