Feisty uses SATA drivers even for IDE drives and so you will have every
partition renamed from hd(x)(x) to sd(x)(x). But fstab works if you are
using UUID for partitions.

I am using Feisty for quite a long time, upgraded from Edgy. The fstab file
is fine for me. I never use (hd1,x) whereas i use (hd0,0) still. Here is the
fstab file which feisty updated for me when upgrade was over.

title           Ubuntu, kernel 2.6.20-15-generic
root            (hd0,7)
ro quiet splash
initrd          /boot/initrd.img-2.6.20-15-generic

Hope this helps a bit to get why it is /dev/sda and /dev/sdb (if you are not
using SATA and got confused)
