Still it works well, I have omited the root= line on my USB drive and it
works like a champ, always boots.
The problem with the root line on a USB boot drive and using a root=
line is you have to adjust it depending on how many drives the computer
has, ie my desktop has four drives and my laptop 1. Removing the root=/
line makes it work on both machines without farting around without
adjusting the root line at boot for each.
