Well, I didn't know that about the kernel. What I did was just delete all references to /dev/disk/by-id and replaced it in fstab with the actual location:
/dev/hda1 /dev/hda2 etc.
Then everything worked fine. Can you explain the advantage of leaving all the serial ## gobbledegook in fstab. It seems cleaner to me to just put the location. Maybe I can get a better result if I use the /dev/disk/by-id???
