Strange drive re-assignment...
Okay this is just strange. I bought a new computer case (just the case) and transferred all my hard ware over and made sure I plugged all my drives in the same order and on the same connections on the cables.
Here is what my drive setup was before I transferred cases:
hda = Lite-On CDRW
hdb = WinXP and Fedora Core1 (using Fedora's grub bootloader)
hdc = Gentoo
hdd = Arch-Linux
Now this is where the strangeness lies,
When I booted up my PC after transferring all my stuff over I am greeted with the Grub bootloader from Fedora just like before so I'm thinking all is good, nope, only WinXP and Fedora will boot and after some snooping around I now have this as my drive assignments:
hdd= WinXP & Fedora
I checked my Bios and it is set to boot from:
2. HD0 <--- thats a zero
I guess I don't understand how it would still boot properly to my WinXP/Fedora bootloader/drive if it is not the first hard drive to begin with and I was able to boot the Gentoo drive by giving it the same hard drive number (2 in grub) that WinXP/Fedora currently occupy according to cfdisk.
I'm just baffled and figure this is going to cause big problems down the line even though it works now.
