Please note that /dev/hdx device names are going away in the future --
even parallel ATA disks (IDE) will be called /dev/sdx. When this
happens, references to /dev/hdx in grub config files or /etc/fstab will
break.

The new drivers have already been merged into the Linux kernel tree, and
may be turned on for Fedora Core 7.

See http://lwn.net/Articles/198344/ for more details.

Hope this helps,

James.
