But, would that work if you can't boot the system?  I was trying to
come up with a way to check UUID consistency with what udev was
thinking verses what the fstab said, using a rescue cd/dvd.

I forgot about the plain old /dev/disk/by-uuid, but then again I was
thinking of udev for some reason.

And, like someone else said, not EVERY thing has gone "sd", an older,
or even some recent ide controllers still show up as "hd"
