err, sorry that was my mistake ... i copy pasted from wrong terminal
(from my desktop fedora 16 grub 2 instead from the centos server where i

so, to wrap things up: on my centos 5 storage i have root (hd0,0)
that stayed the same no matter how many block devices i added or removed
from my hardware card... but in fstab i use only UUIDs
