GRUB hard drive recognition
My hard drive is attached to my computer via an ide cable, it is the only hard drive and yet all of linux recognises it as hdd not hda. The kernel however only looks for hda and so fails unless i specifically tell it to look for hdd. Other things fail then that are looking for hda and i have not found an easy way to change these. So, is there any way of changing the hard drive designation from hdd to hda. I have tried renaming it and changing both of the names in properties (this was from knoppix) but it did not work.
