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.
