Peter Jones will probably know this better, but how does this relate
to creation of 'devices.map' and 'grub.conf' file? I gather that
the devices.map would then have:

(hd0)     /dev/sdb

and since this file is used by GRUB to figure out which disk
is what device, this could screw GRUB up b/c (hd0) would point
to a non-existing device (sda would have been the right drive).
