Probably, just /boot/grub/menu.lst needs to be updated.

Take a look at the kopt= and groot= entries in the Default Options
section, and correct them to reflect your new drive configuration - but
don't uncomment those lines as warned in the file.

Then, as root, run 'update-grub', which will use the default values you
just changed to update the boot menu entries further down in the
menu.lst file.
