    I was wrong.  Boot and wait for busybox to come up.  /dev doesn't have
sda5 so no change of a sane fallback.  So I dig around, find my rescue CDs,
boot into one, chroot over to my machine and pull up the UUID of sda5.
What'cha know, it's the same flippin' UUID as in all the boot options.
Chances are at this point I'll have a faster time torrenting 8.04, burning it
and reinstalling than fixing this.
