Ok - take a look in /boot on the new install. What kernels and
initrds do you have in there? Is vmlinuz-2.6.23.17-88.fc7 in that
directory, along with initrd-2.6.23.17-88.fc7.img?

That is fine - I will do my best to explain things. I hope I can
teach you what is going on. It can be confusing because the root you
tell Grub to use may be different from the root directory the kernel
uses.

The main difference is the pretty screen you can use instead of
seeing what is going on.
