Please specify which previous versions. Also, does the problem go away with 
LFS LiveCD 6.3-pre1?

You should try building LFS-6.2 from SuSE. As a part of this task, you will 
build your custom kernel. If you manage to find a 2.6.16.x kernel 
configuration that works for you, please mail me the .config file privately 
(if not, the bug will not be fixed). Then I'll show you how to boot the 
LiveCD with a custom kernel, and we'll use this technique to find out which 
kernel option is wrong for you on the CD.
