Thanks -- that put me in the right direction.
My latest understanding of what is going on is that grub.cfg is looking
for /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.32-5-686 etc but vmlinuz-2.6.32-5-686 is actually
in / not /boot at that point. If I go to the command line in grub, it
looks like it has mounted the boot partition at root.
By manually editing grub.cfg I can get it to boot. However, grub.cfg is
not meant to be editable: how should I configure this properly?
