The sd verses hd naming was true with kernel 2.6.X when I built LFS
6.5. That was clearly pointed out in a series of email on this list
(it seems that some old email is not available in the LFS archives
don't know if that group is or not) and other documentation from other
sources. IIRC it was in the configure process when preparing the
kernel for compilation. It never has been in the LFS book but it is
found in other places. After a certain release of the 2.6.X (without
researching I don't know the exact release) kernel that has been true
for any Linux system as was pointed out some what earlier in this
email thread. So, this has been true for about 3 or 4 years, maybe 5
