Well, that worked.  And /etc/fstab is happy with

/dev/disk/by-id/ata-ST3750640AS-5QD4Z81L-part1 /bottom ext3 defaults,auto,rw,nodev 0 0

but /boot/menu/grub is not happy with

title           Debian GNU/Linux, kernel 2.6.18-6-amd64 (new)
root            /dev/disk/by-id/ata-ST3750640AS-5QD4Z81L-part1
kernel          /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.18-6-amd64 root=/dev/disk/by-id/ata-ST3750640AS-5QD4Z81L-part1 ro 
initrd          /boot/initrd.img-2.6.18-6-amd64

Evidently, grub wants a different notation.  The manual grup manual
provides hd and fd notation, but the drives are sd, and, again, how would
grub know which is which?
