I have solved my problem with the last kernel in the new Ubuntu 8.04 modifying the file "menu.lst" (/boot/grub/menu.lst) using the UUID (instead of /dev/hd?? format):

Before:

title Debian GNU/Linux, kernel 2.6.24-17-generic
root (hd1,0)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.24-17-generic root=/dev/hdb1 ro quiet splash
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.24-17-generic
boot

After:

title Debian GNU/Linux, kernel 2.6.24-17-generic
root (hd1,0)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.24-17-generic root=UUID=9f7f358d-6948-44fd-9d36-f166c2566170 ro quiet splash
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.24-17-generic
boot

If i put /dev/sdb1 it works also, maybe a bug in the new kernel??? (my harddrive is not scsi)

To know your uid you must see the fstab file (/etc/fstab). (You can change all the entries: recovery modes, old kernels, etc... )

Perhaps these changes might be useful for anyone with these problems...

The new linux kernels all name the drives sd(x) instead of hd(x). It doesn't matter if the drive is sata, scsi or ide.
