Yes, I agree. But, GRUB handles device labels differently - i.e. the boot
drive is (hd0,0). My problem is not with talking to the SATA drive, it's
with getting the right GRUB info for the dual boot...
As an added point though, all my USB devices are also /dev/sdX as well (where
the X is 'a', 'b', etc...). SATA drives, and USB devices are treated like
SCSI devices..... So, with the single sata drive I have, all my USB devices
are usually /dev/sdb - as I normally only have one connected at a time...
But that's a whole different topic.. :)
