Thanks for your reply. However, I knew that hda becomes sda when using
the linux-ata drivers instead of the good old IDE drivers. My problem is
that the primary boot drive is recognized as sdb, and Grub gets installed
onto the MBR of the tertiary master hard drive, which is incorrectly
recognized as sda. The sequence of drives detected by the linux-ata
drivers is unpredictable in my setup.This is clearly a bug.
