The problem that lookedl ike a usb issue was a pc card, on removing it
and trying the cd those errors disappeared.

but, " LFS LiveCD could not find it's device.."
on the default boot [ no options passed, to see with no pccard or usb
devices attached ]

no local apic present or hardware disabled [ I did disable it, in the
bios, to force cycle the batteries. ]

the error that is displayed above the message:

I'll boot into the mandrake 8.2 installed and pull these from that as
well if it will help.

now going to enable the bios lapic and start with the kernel options,
since we can rule out the apic lapic as causes.
