So the fact that my system disk is running on the 2nd SATA port is wrong?

Does the system know this?  It boots fine for me as its the only 
bootable disk on either controller.

BTW, I just moved my system from a 250GB SATA drive to a 500GB SATA 
drive last Sunday night.....  (something about needing 770MB more space 
in my /usr partition in order to update to F11....)
