I have solved that issue, too. :) Basically, I have regenerated the
device map in grub, issued a grub-install, and then I had to reconfig
the grub.conf when booting (of course, I have regenerated the initrd
image including the usb-storage drivers) in the grub-shell minieditor.

If someone is intrested, I can post the step-by-step procedure.

Now I writing this email by the USB-disk booted FC6 prerelease.... :)

Thanks to everyone,
