are you _sure_ :-)
correct me if I'm wrong.
"root" points to the root (/) *partiton* on that hard disk not the drive
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.
