Hi Gulio,

should not be normal. Please check in /boot/grub/menul.lst the line 

# kopt=root=/dev/hda6 ro

It is in the section with the many hashes. Do not remove the hashes (suppose, 
you know this).

If you enter here the correct partition for root, an upgrade should be o.k. 
next time.

Otherwise reinstall grub again and then check the mentioned line again.

This should work.

Best regards
