Forgive me, Karl... I seem to have not been clear.  I read the original post a 
couple times, and STILL left out something important.  Let me try, again. :) 

Here's the scenario:
1. Kubuntu had to be restored from backup, for whatever the reason
2. Reformatting the partition means the UUID information is out of date
3. Along comes the adept-updater, and wants to upgrade some files
4. The files are upgraded ...among them, the kernel
5. Because the kernel is updated, a new menu.lst is created, and the ORIGINAL 
UUID(s) are placed in the new menu.lst, NOT the NEW UUID(s)

Now, the $64,000 question:
Where is adept FINDING the obsolete UUID(s)??  I need to change it in the file 
adept is looking at, along with any other changed UUID(s) resulting from 
reformatted partitions.

I hope that helps to further clarify what I seek.
