No, but I'm wondering what changed between RH9 and FC3 that it doesn't work 

Also, what is the *exact* option one uses? Finally, last time I tried to edit 
my grub.conf, I ended up screwing things up so badly I couldn't boot off the 
hdd and had to boot off floppy. Obviously that's not going to work this time. 
I'd appreciate some help getting this fixed...
