Yes, SDA is an external USB drive.
I don't see how that HOWTO helps. The only GRUB reference to SDA is in device.map where /dev/hda defines hd0 and /dev/sda defines hd1. I don't see a reference to hd1 in menu.lst.
Here is my menu.lst, without comments:
color cyan/blue white/blue
title Debian GNU/Linux, kernel 2.6.8-2-386
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.8-2-386 root=/dev/hda2 ro
title Debian GNU/Linux, kernel 2.6.8-2-386 (recovery mode)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.8-2-386 root=/dev/hda2 ro single
title Other operating systems:
title Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
It all looks OK to me, but I still get an error.
