I'll give that a try when I get home tonight and let you know if that 
fixes it. If not I'll post up the info the other responder asked about 
for further discussion.

Any ideas on can cause this temporary insanity?

And no, I've not added/deleted drives or partitions, just compiled up a 
new kernel and tried to add it to the boot menu. Yes, that implies that 
I messed up the boot menu somehow, but I've not yet seen it and I didn't 
keep a copy of what it looked like before (why should I? what could go 
wrong? :)

Thanks for the replies.
