I have completed the LFS build by the book and have followed the guide here http://www.culmination.org/Mike/2.6-ude ... bootcd.txt however when i try to boot the ISO in qemu it kernel panics "kernel panic - not syncing: VFS Unable to mount root fs on unknown block(8,49)" The people on freenode ##linux directed me here stating you were the defacto expert on live cd creation, could you help me make this work?

try the kernelcommandlineoption "root=/dev/ram0" and make sure the kernel can read the used filesystem without a module.
block(8,49) is /dev/sdd1 what is sure wrong.
