Yeah, grub never uses sd* names, always hd* and always in the order
by BIOS (as opposed to Linux, which presents them as they are discovered
through device probing with names dependent on the module/subsystem).

You can probably use grub TAB-completion to determine the correct (hd*)
setting. Generally, your boot partition will have a vmlinux or vmlinuz
on it. So, the workflow would go something like:
0 1 2 3
vmlinuz vmlinuz.old vmlinuz-gentoo-2.6.19-r2 vmlinuz-gentoo-2.6.18-r6
At this point you know your /boot partition is (hd0,2) in grub-speak.
If don't have a dedicated /boot partition, and instead it's part of the /
filesystem you'll want to look for boot/vmlinux or boot/vmlinuz instead.
This may work even if you have a /boot parition, since some
ditros/administrator put a symbolic link "boot" to "." in /boot when it's
a partition by itself.
