moving the whole bunch to a new disk

Hi everybody,
It has been so long since the last time I wrote something in this list.
Well, at least it means that I have been able to keep going by myself.
But, now I am stuck in a situation I would appreciate very much a little
help.  I want to transfer my fc5 installation from one IDE to a SATA
drive. I have googled about grub and moving stuff cross drives but I
still haven't found a easy way to do it.
All file systems are ext3 and I have / and /boot partitions :
/dev/hda1 12G / (label /1)
/dev/hda3 100M /boot (label /boot)
/dev/sdc1 20G / (label /barra)
/dev/sdc2 150M /boot (label /barraboo)

I have copied all files using "rsync -av source dest" and installed grub
by typing
"install (hd3,1)/grub/stage1 d (hd3) (hd3,1)/grub/stage2
inside the grub shell. The device.map for grub is:
# this device map was generated by anaconda
(fd0)   /dev/fd0
(hd0)   /dev/hda
(hd1)   /dev/sda
(hd2)   /dev/sdb
(hd3)   /dev/sdc
(hd4)   /dev/sdd

I have edited fstab (only in the target) accordingly and tried to reboot
from sdc. I only got the word GRUB. When I boot from hda, I got a "file
not found" error. Here follows the grub.conf entries :   

title Fedora test(sem quiet)
        root (hd3,1)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.17-1.2187_FC5 ro root=LABEL=/barra rhgb
        initrd /initrd-2.6.17-1.2187_FC5.img
title Fedora Core (sem quiet)
        root (hd0,2)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.17-1.2187_FC5 ro root=LABEL=/1 rhgb
        initrd /initrd-2.6.17-1.2187_FC5.img

If anybody knows how to get through this, please help.
