I don't set up as an expert,
but it seems to me that the changes you are making are too comprehensive.
You would be better off pausing a little longer,
and trying to work out why one particular thing is not working.

For example, if I had a problem with X I would try installing in text mode,
and then try to set up X later, using one of the several tools available.

I've never understood your problems with /dev/hda and /dev/hdb .
I think that normally the computer will try to boot from /dev/hda
unless you have told the BIOS otherwise.
But if you install grub on the /dev/hda MBR it can certainly
find partitions on /dev/hdb .

As for IPv6, I think you can disable this by adding IPV6INIT=no
to /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 (or whatever)
and saying "service network restart" as root.
(Or you could remove the IPv6 module from /lib/modules/<version>/ .)
