I have the same problem but i have been able to boot change the following to grub.conf
root=/dev/hda2 (2 being the / partition) I don't see why I can't just leave it as LABEL=/ ???
it boots but everything fails on boot
It says its mounting / as readonly
Anyway its givin me the darn sh*ts.... Can't be that hard...??
Why can't we do this ?
