Strange...  I've been using Gutsy since just after it was released...  
upgraded from Fiesty.  My hard-drive is hda, although fstab uses UUIDs...

I have no idea why the floppy entry is just /dev/ and not /dev/floppy or

Respect the elders. Teach the young. Co-operate with the pack.
Play when you can. Hunt when you must. Rest in between.
Share your affections. Voice your opinion. Leave your Mark.
