but before rebooting from the HD, run tune2fs -U
random -L yourchoiceofpartitionlable on one of those root partitions if
you've cloned it with dd or equivalent. In any event, give it a label, and
use labels in fstab and menu.lst instead of device names or those awful long
/dev/disk/by-gobbledegookyaddayadda names.

Good idea. Easier to type as well.
BootFS
RootFS

hey! Easy to confuse ...

p01boot
p03os114

or for those who routinely have multiple HDs:

HDnick01boot
HDnick03os114

OBTW: How do I give a short label to a swap ?
It is currently
/dev/disk/by-id/ata-IC25N080ATMR04-0_MRG41YK4J5NL5H-part2
in the menu.lst

Did you know mkswap has a man page? :-)

swapoff -a
mkswap -L p02swapper /dev/sda2
(edit fstab)
swapon -a
