Hi Bill,

Each Linux install partitions has /boot and /boot/grub of their own.
I do not have a separate boot partition.

I had replaced "root" commands in all my boot stanzas with "uuid" lines because 
with disks added/removed "root (hdm,n)" spec becomes a moving target, and boot 
process often fails.

I always thought that in line e.g. "kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.24-24-generic", 
the path is relative to the device declared as root either by a "root (hdm,n)" 
line, or by a "uuid ...." line.

Am I wrong? If so what is the right way of specifying my kernel/initrd lines?
