Actually, it has something to do with it, because grub apparently
uses the /boot/grub/device.map file to correlate anaconda's
idea of /dev/sd* with grub's idea (hd*). Unfortunately there are
already other threads with people talking about the fact that
anaconda doesn't see the same /dev/sd* mapping as the installed
kernel sees when it boots later, so who knows which one grub
is using :-).
