Interesting obversation. In any case, I always recommend that people
moving to UUID in /etc/fstab make the change and then boot with only
_one_ disk attached. If this works but then it fails with 2 disks,
maybe the "resume" reference is a problem (although I'm not sure
because suspend/resume is not used on the NSLU2). However, some
people report that simply making the UUID change and booting with one
disk doesn't work... and I've no idea why because this definitely
should work (and works for me).
So, can you make the UUID change again and boot with one disk? Does
