Thanks for your quick response. The problem is that udev keeps changing my 
harddrive names 
at each boot. Normally my root partition resides on /dev/sdc2. However with 
each reboot 
this name changes (the last three boots it changed from /dev/sdb2 to /dev/sdf2 
to /dev/sdc2). 

I solved this partially by changing the /dev/sdc2 entry in fstab with a 
entry. Unfortunately grub has still /dev/sdc2 configured as root partition. 
This means I have to guess every
boot which partition-name the root partition resides. I do this by entering 
devices names (after 
the error message that grub couldn't find my root partition). I start with 
/dev/sda2 trying each letter 
(sdb2, sdc2, sdd2) until I find the root partition.

In order to solve this problem I would like to set the /dev/disk/by-id/ 
parameter in my grub.conf.
I hope that explains the problem clearly. Thanks in advance!
