Not a problem.

What's in /boot/grub/device.map?

Also, one thing you can try is, when the menu comes up, or it announces
what it thinks it's going to boot, you can hit 'e' to get the menu, then
'e' again on that kernel, and you'll get the three lines - root, kernel
and initrd, that you can edit in the grub shell. Now, that's pretty
primitive, but it *does* have completion. Try editing the root= line, and
remember that it calls *everything* <hdx), so try
root (hd<tab) and see what it offers.
