The new box had originally SATA HDD with Windows XP, then I added IDE HDD and installed Suse 11.4 on it and adjusted boot options so I could boot either WinXP or Suse (default). Everything was working smoothly till I added another SATA HDD with ext3.
The issue is the new SATA HDD got assigned differently at each boot - hdb or hdc. So after mounting and fstab it doesn't come up. Also Win XP drive was hda which is no longer bootable. I guess firstly I can remove WinXP HDD completely and see how Suse goes with auto detection, but prefer to keep WinXP HDD in the system.
