Just to let everyone know, I did in fact see. The UUID simply replaces
the /dev/whatever. Ubuntu was nice enough to put a comment above each
line. So in the case below, if you want to change the mount point for
/dev/sda2, you alter the line
UUID=7647b170-58c6-4334-9ccf-39a88aec8130 / ext3
because it follows the commented indicator from the old system.
