solve the hda/sda swapping
Problem When booting from cd or usb disk shows up as sdX. after run setup-disk the disk shows up as hdX and boot fails.
Reason The ide drivers gets loaded first. Which is loaded first seems to depend on how/when depmod was run and is completetly unpredictable.
Solution 1. Use UUID=… instead of devices in fstab and exlinux.conf 2. disable the IDE drivers and use scsi emulation only. (/dev/hdX will dissapear) This is what debian, ubuntu and fedora does.
