RE: GRUB dual-boot 32/64bit RHEL ES - followup

My thanks go out to Ed Wilts, and Marcelino Mata on this one;

Ed for this insight:

and Marcelino for this gem:

While booted into the still-functional 32-bit OS, I relabeled the 64-bit
partitions, updated grub, updated /etc/fstab on the 64-bit partition, and
rebooted.  An instant Success! 

Thanks again fellows!
