sed extracts entries matching (hd<number> or (fd<number> that may be
followed by a comma, and partitions (DOS ones or BSD slices) and ending
with a ')'. If the string matches, this substring is extracted (\1)
and if it doesn't match the string is printed unchanged.

Since I'm using mainly *BSD systems these days I'm perhaps not up to
date with Linux, but I think this is simply because here we have the
new Linux device names/entries and because the script still try to find
a symlink to a classical /dev/hda /dev/sda etc. and the sed expressions
don't change the string "/dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/disc" to
something it is able to recognize.

More sed expressions have to be added (please note once more that I
have no up-to-date Linux under my eyes and since I don't use
grub-install neither...).
