How do I tell grub to boot the 11.0

I'm not left unable to boot?

There might be a YaST way to do this, and I don't know it.

However, I would simply edit /boot/grub/menu.lst and change "default 0"
to "default 1". Documentation for grub is in info pages; "info grub" at the
command-line or info:grub in konqueror. In specific you need node "default".

Even if I wasn't removing sdc, I would still like to know how to make
boot from my original /boot instead of the last installed /boot. Can
somebody point me in the right direction to get this fixed? Thanks.

You can also just remove the new entr(y|ies), if you like.
