 in debian Lenny both grub and fstab still use /dev/sda like descriptions for harddrives. this might cause problems as soon as you have more than one harddrive controller in your system (or maybe even with just one controller but several drives?). however, due to some magic voodoo your system might detect your primary boot harddisk as /dev/sda the first time and /dev/sdd the second time you boot your system.. this causes it of course to not mount your root directory and therefore to crash while booting. ​ in debian Lenny both grub and fstab still use /dev/sda like descriptions for harddrives. this might cause problems as soon as you have more than one harddrive controller in your system (or maybe even with just one controller but several drives?). however, due to some magic voodoo your system might detect your primary boot harddisk as /dev/sda the first time and /dev/sdd the second time you boot your system.. this causes it of course to not mount your root directory and therefore to crash while booting. ​
