Again, this only seems to be true on your system:

# Begin /etc/fstab
# partition	mountpoint	type	mode		dump	fsck-order

/dev/hda8	/		ext2	defaults	1	1
/dev/hda9	/usr		ext2	defaults	1	2
/dev/hda5	/home		ext2	defaults	1	2
/dev/hda7	/usr2		ext2	defaults	1	2
/dev/hda13	/usr2/images	ext2	defaults	1	2

/dev/hda11	/mnt/lfs	ext2	defaults	1	2
/dev/hda12	/mnt/lfs/usr	ext2	defaults	1	2
<cut the rest>

as you see hda11 and 12 are the two partitions for my development LFS

Have you ever tried to replace your base system's kernel with a clean
2.2.16 one?
