scsi naming by installer

here's my second problem: (i'm zero for three on 5.10 installs)

i have two machines that have usb 2.0 add-in boards. the installer finds the
usb ports and assigns them sda, sdb, sdc and sdd.
then it comes to the two real scsi drives and names them sde and sdf.

when it comes time to boot, init looks for the real hard drives at sda and
sdb and that's all she wrote.

i have had this problem with 5.04 and with others.

i don't dare touch my production machines.

now what?

thanks in advance.
