I really appreciate everyones' help on this one... I didn't think to look in 
the menu.list, for one thing, and then I wasn't certain enough of the 
architecture to know exactly where to look.  My son stumbled on the UUIDs 
in /dev/disk, and I wonder at the fact that I didn't find it, given the 
amount of time I have spent looking around, in there. :-\ lol

At any rate... thank you, one and all, for helping me get to the bottom of 
this minor mystery.
