Just thinking about it. I thought IDE HDD's were always recognised as /dev/hd<x>. But liveCD (in fact any boot program I use) is recognising this one as /dev/sda.
What's going on there?
This changed some time back (I can't recall the specifics, but it was in
a 2.6.something kernel). All HDDs are now recognied as /dev/sd<x>,
irregardless of their connection type.
Wrong is endian little that knows everyone but.
