I unmounted /boot and there was nothing there. I'll remove that extra
/boot but I doubt it will matter. After all, it just symlinks to
itself. At least mine does here anyway. ;-)
As to the kernel, it boots the exact same kernel. That is the only
kernel I have for that version. If grub was pointing to anything else,
it wouldn't be there to even try to boot.
What should I add to fstab for /dev? This is a desktopy rig.
