single user mode / rdev

Hey all:

It's been awhile since I've had to do this...

What's the procedure for changing the root partition in my kernel image? I
switched the SCSI ID on my HD and when I boot, I can get into what seems
like single user mode when the kernel cannot mount what it thinks is the
root partition (used to be /dev/sda2, now it's /dev/sdb2). I can't find
rdev. Where's rdev? Is there a better way to do this?

Thanks for any and all help...
