Thas has _nothing_ to do with /dev/hda or /dev/sdb or anything
of that sort.  "hd0" above means "an initial disk device in
BIOS ordering".

What "SD numbers"?  If your BIOS switches boot devices around then
you are left with 'map' command although this can be a headache.
GRUB is not Linux specific at all.

If you want to learn about GRUB you cannot really avoid reading
through at least parts of 'info grub'.
