Re: converting to grub from lilo [DrDos on hdc1 not booting]

It would appear that on May 23, Mark Neidorff did say:

> In your lilo conf. you say that DrDOS is on /dev/hdc.  Wouldn't that 
> correspond to hd2 in grub?

Yeah thats what Id have figured too. Until I looked at the numbers
anaconda used to build my initial grub.conf.(since edited)

Here is what I have for the FC2 I'm using right now.

title theWanderlust (2.6.5-1.358)
        root (hd1,3)
        kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.5-1.358 ro root=/dev/hdc4 rhgb quiet
        initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.5-1.358.img

You may notice that it too is /dev/hdc*  AND hd1... Grub booted this...

But then perhaps it has something to do with /dev/hdb being my dvd-rom.
Yet I wouldn't think it detects and discards the cd drives from it's
numbering scheme. Therefore I suspect that it must be something like:

hda=1st master			hd0=1st master
hdb=1st master's slave		hd1=2nd master
hdc=2nd master			hd3=1st slave ?	
hdd=2nd master's slave		hd4=2nd slave ?

If I'm right, it will get more confusing if/when computers have more
than 2 primary ide ports as I think grub's notation will number ALL the
master drives before any of the slaves...

If I'm wrong, would somebody please correct me?
