preupgrade f8 to f9 -- two issues

I just updated one of my computers from f8 to f9 using preupgrade and have two
minor issues.

First issue:

After running preupgrade and going through all of the steps to get a working
updated system, everything booted back up and appears to be ok.  I then ran
"yum update" to update everything to the latest f9 version and then, when I
rebooted that time all I got was a black screen with "GRUB".

I burned boot.iso from the F9 install dvd image onto a cd and booted with that
and ran linux rescue.  After getting to a prompt I ran "chroot /mnt/sysimage"
and then "grub-install /dev/sda".  Exited the shell and rebooted and everything
now works fine.  But I have a strange-looking grub.conf file:

# grub.conf generated by anaconda
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE:  You have a /boot partition.  This means that
#          all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
#          root (hd0,0)
#          kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00
#          initrd /initrd-version.img
title Fedora (
	root (hd0,0)
	kernel /vmlinuz- ro
root=UUID=6264a92e-b26c-4a76-9281-f4274045e207 rhgb quiet
initrd /initrd- title Fedora (
	root (hd0,0)
	kernel /vmlinuz- ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb
quiet initrd /initrd-

Note the  "root=UUID=6264a92e-b26c-4a76-9281-f4274045e207".  instead of the
usual  "root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00".

What's going on there?

Second issue:

When I run firefox by typing firefox at a gnome terminal prompt I get this
message in the terminal window:

which: no soundwrapper in
which: no soundwrapper in

When I run firefox the same way on this computer (which I updated from f8 to f9
a few days ago "the hard way" by using the "yum upgrade" method instead of
preupgrade, I don't get that error message.

It looks like something is missing on that computer that's present on this
computer, but what is it?  I went to youtube with firefox on that computer and
watched a video there and I had sound.
