Grub2 has problems with uuid's. I recently installed the grub2 pkg on jaunty
and it changed the:
uuid <long string for uuid)
in grub1's menu.lst to:
root <same long string for uuid>
in both the menu.lst and in the grub.cfg files.
This left my machine unbootable.
I have reported this bug which was a dupe of a similar bug. Just a warning
to those who might want to try grub2 but still keep grub1 working.
