Bug Report for Grub

Hi there

I´ve found a bug in (GNU) Grub.

I´ve got the Abit AN7 Mainboard with included SATA Controller (check
out http://www.abit-usa.com/products/mb/products.php?categories=1&model=158
for further information).

My first booting device is the harddisk at the onboard add-in card
(SATA Controller) and that I´ve setup in my bios.

When I´m executing

grub-install hd0

it install on my /dev/hdb and not /dev/sda so the machine doesn´t
boot. I have to change device.map and grub.lst manually and reinstall
it again before it works:

grub generates this device.map


(hd0)   /dev/hdb
(fd0)   /dev/fd0
(hd4)   /dev/sda
(hd1)   /dev/hde
(hd3)   /dev/hdh
(hd2)   /dev/hdg

I had to change it to:

(hd4)   /dev/hdb
(fd0)   /dev/fd0
(hd0)   /dev/sda
(hd1)   /dev/hde
(hd3)   /dev/hdh
(hd2)   /dev/hdg

reinstall grub with grub-install and reconfigurate the grub.lst to get
it work. But after I´ve updated to a new kernel the same problem
occures again (overwrites device.map) :o( ...

I´ve checked out that problem on Debian Sarge and SuSE Linux 10.0 - it
is always the same. I think grub-install doesn´t recognize that the
SATA harddisk is the first boot device and install to the wrong disk.

Perhaps you´ve got a permanent solution for that.

Greetings and thanks
