Hi,
with grub2 it is a different story.

http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/GRUB2
par 1.1 Notes for current GRUB users 
...
Device naming has changed between GRUB and GRUB2. Partitions are numbered from 1
instead of 0 while drives are still numbered from 0. For example, /dev/sda1
would be referred to as (hd0,1) using GRUB2.

Command     | GRUB Legacy | GRUB 2   | Comments 
...
root          yes           replaced   now a variable
rootnoverify  yes           no         useless
