F9 keeps looking for lvm; kernel panic

Transfered an F9 install from a bad disk. / is on sda3, an ext3 
partition. /boot is on sda4.

grub.conf has kernel=2.56.25....  root=/dev/sda3 ( also root=LABEL=/)

but I get a kernel panic because it looks for LogVol01 and can't find it.

I assume initrd tells the kernel /dev/root is on the lvm vol. How do I 
reset /dev/root?

I can't find any kernel parameters that stop the kernel from loading lvm.

I really don't want to reinstall FC9.

Any suggestions appeciated.
