it seems odd that you would have it set to /dev/sdb and grub as (hd0,0).
It shouldn't hurt I would think if you did grub-install to both /dev/sda
and /dev/sdb. Most modern BIOS allows you to pick the boot order of the
various drive types.

package-cleanup --orphans will give you a lot of guidance on packages
that it can't update.

in theory, that shouldn't have any impact on upgrades IF you put the
compiled stuff in /usr/local

get the updates installed first. You might find that the rpmfusion fglrx
package is more to your liking though I wouldn't think that there would
much of a performance difference between F9 and F10 w/r/t radeonhd but
then again, I'm not using it.
