RE: Boot loader problem after addiing SCSI disk

Thanks Ed for your response.

The root partition on sdb1 has a label as "/" in the grub.conf.

Attached is a brief summary on the system, three disks, sda, sdb and
I have also included the grub.conf file before any change.

Do you have labels on your boot volumes?  grub should point to the
label.  e.g.
title Tao Linux (2.6.9-34.0.1.EL)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.9-34.0.1.EL ro root=LABEL=/1 norhgb quiet
        initrd /initrd-2.6.9-34.0.1.EL.img

So make sure you've got both the correct root and LABEL options
correctly specified.
