Yeah, grub never uses sd* names, always hd* and always in the order presented 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 file on it. So, the workflow would go something like: GRUB> (hd<TAB> 0 1 GRUB> (hd0,<TAB> 0 1 2 3 GRUB> (hd0,0)/vm<TAB> GRUB> (hd0,1)/vm<TAB> GRUB> (hd0,2)/vm<TAB> 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 on a partition by itself. -- Boyd Stephen Smith Jr. ,= ,-_-. =. bss03@××××××××××.net ((_/)o o(\_)) ICQ: 514984 YM/AIM: DaTwinkDaddy `-'(. .)`-' \_/ New GPG Key!
