Thanks Les, I got working although I'm not exactly sure why it stopped
working which is a little disconcerting.  This install used to have
/dev/hda on the primary slave.  I just relpaced the motherboard with a
completely different one recently and all seemed perfect until this
recent problem. Since I changed the "/" /dev/hda drive to the master
and corrected grub.conf and others it seem fine. I guess can't blame
it for not wanting to be a slave. :)    Different bios = different
