Incredible frustration at Grub/linux!

I have been -trying- to setup a server with a '/' filesystem of
'reiserfs' for later use under LVM and some HA software but I have been
absolutely unable to get past the starting gate and on top of feeling
flat out stupid I am also getting terribly frustrated.
I want to do one, little simple thing - make a backup of '/' to
another drive/partition and then reboot using it. It seems that
absolutely no matter what I do, what file I edit or what I try to force
the system (Fedora Core 1) INSISTS on using the original '/' (in this
case '/dev/sda1'). I don't what the heck I am doing wrong but I am about
to blow a gasket. I have never been so fsck'ing mad at Linux before. Why
is it so damn hard to mount a different '/' partition?!
Anyway, I am using Grub because it is the only boot loader available
on Fedora. I have tried reading the docs and am doing so again after
sending this to see if I missed something simple...
Bah, if nothing else this is a rant that may help me cool down enough
to find my problem. Sorry for the noise.
