You sir are my personal "insert dirty word here" hero! I had this problem and thought that Linux had crashed and burned on me. I tried this and it booted right up! Normally, I wouldn't care about a simple rebuild of a Linux system, but this was our PDC and would have required HOURS worth of work. Thanks again for your help!
