Thanks to all of you. Finally got it. Small how to for future reference.
1. Boot with the installation CD (any should work, I used #1).
2. Press F3 for information about possibilities (may be skipped?)
3. type rescue root=/dev/hda1
4. type in password for root, remount to write as indicated.
5. Change /etc/fstab to reflect hda instead of hdb.
6. Run update-grub.
7. Edit /boot/grub/menu.1st as needed.
10. Contribute to the community.
