Booting a GRUB CD on an internal IDE drive works fine.

(using (cd) as the setup and root device)

When booting from a USB drive, it merrily reports "loading Stage 2" , then
dumps me at the "Grub>" prompt.

setup(<tab> gives me;

Possible disks are: hd0 cd


setup (cd)

gives me;

Error 21: selected disk does not exist

Something lies!

Anyone any ideas?
