Sorry to be overly pedantic, but this not strictly correct. What grub does is
search in sequence hda, hdb, hdc ... hdh assigning a number 0, 1, 2 ...
whenever and only if it finds a hard drive. cdrom/cdrw's don't count nor do I
believe other ide devices, for example ls120 drives.
On my system, I have my hd's on a pci udma66 card and my cd drives on the
motherboard ide's (udma33). hde=(hd0).
