Here's what i sent to Jordon off-list:

Layout is:

/dev/sda: 320GB WD - 100MB LABEL /wboot=/boot, 20GB LABEL /wroot=/,
8GB swap, balance to /home
/dev/sdb: 1TB Hitachi - 100MB LABEL /hboot, 20GB LABEL /hroot, balance
to data partition

/hboot and /hroot are not mounted for normal system operations.

I did try using chroot but I've never done that before and I probably
did it wrong....

I also have a /dev/sdc, but that has no bootable stuff on it and is
all data (500GB WD drive).
