That was my problem.  In order to prepare for a restore, I start with
a blank disk, and format it to match my old drive.  But in doing that,
I don't think volume labels ever got set. "e2label /dev/sda1" returns
/boot but "e2label /dev/sdb"1 returns nothing. .

So in order for grub.conf to boot the new drive, I have to assign
partition labels, or change grub.conf to use physical device names?
