Are you using a serial ATA hardrive or a normal parrallel ATA harddrive. 
If it's SATA then you need to know that current versions of the kernel 
and consequently udev read SATA drives as /sd?? devices. For instance, 
my serial ata hard drive is /dev/sda and my root partition is /dev/sda2. 
One thing to note about this is that even though they are now scsi 
devices to the kernel, keep using the hd nomenclature for grub, thus in 
grub my root partition is hd0,1
