You have to pay attention to your partition layout and make it match in 
2 places.  /boot/grub/grub.conf (this is the real copy, /etc/grub.conf 
is a symlink that should still be pointed there...).  Be sure the root= 
settings are right, and if they mention a label, add the label to the 
partition.  Also, /etc/fstab - you can either change fstab to match the 
partition device names or add labels to match the old system.
