Yes, it's my usual practice to use separate partitions for /, /boot, and 
/home. The UUID refers to the / partition. It's the same for the other 
two distros on the computer. The other two boot OK. This one hangs with 
(initramfs_). The / partitions have links to the files on the /boot 
partition and was set up that way by the install program.

A lightbulb just went on. I need to check if those links exist on 9.04. 
I'll get back.
