When you upgrade from 9.04, you still had Grub 1 and that is normal.
Installing grub-pc upgraded you to Grub 2.
"root <disk hardware no.>" is a bug that I thought had been eradicated...
Having to run upgrade-from-grub-legacy means that you chose "Chainload
from menu.lst?" when installing grub-pc.
So it is normal. Glad all's well.
