are you _sure_ :-)

correct me if I'm wrong.
"root" points to the root (/) *partiton* on that hard disk not the drive
it's self..
for example "root=/dev/sda1" which would actually be a partiton on the hard

check your /etc/fstab file. and see what it thinks the root partiton is
look for a line like this:

"/dev/sdb5	/	ext2	defaults,errors=remount-ro	0	1"

and the "/dev/sdb5" will be your root partiton.
or look in your /etc/lilo.conf and see how the other one works.
