[Bug 21412] Re: Default update-grub behaviour is not intuitive with respect to user modifications

I have such a partition configuration:
/dev/sda1: /boot
/dev/sda2: swap
/dev/sda3: windows
/dev/sda5: /
/dev/sda6: /home

In my menu.lst file I have lines containing: "root (hd0,0)" which is
true. Nonetheless, after every kernel update, it automatically changes
to "hd(0,1)" which breaks running of Ubuntu, forcing me to manually
change it back.

It's not very much problem for me, but I also installed Ubuntu at my
family's computer and it's strange if GRUB gets broken after just an
update.

My (PROPER!) /boot/grub/menu.lst ends with that:
"## ## End Default Options ##

title		Ubuntu 7.10, kernel 2.6.22-14-generic
root		(hd0,0)
kernel		/vmlinuz-2.6.22-14-generic root=UUID=27771eab-0c14-46c4-86cc-3883a332c1c5 ro quiet splash
initrd		/initrd.img-2.6.22-14-generic
quiet
