FC5 and Dell Latitude D620 and sda partitions


I have installed FC5 as dull boot with windows on a laptop Dell Latitude D620.

http://www.dell.com/content/products...n=specs#tabtop

I have got only one hard disk 80GB, why has Linux (FC5) read HD's partitions as sda1, sda2, sda3,,,,,etc ??? Shouldn't it have read it as hda1, hda2, hda3,,,,,etc ?

Well, under 2.6 kernel you don't need scsi emulation for a CD/DVD drive to burn so on most instances you'll find that /dev/hda is actually your cd drive ... course that does depend on who built your computer, and what you've done to it.
