Mint linux has a problem installing on my system. I have a PATA drive installed and a SATA drive w/ a SATA add in card. I am installing Mint on the SATA. The PATA has Windows(I think it works lol) and Ubuntu7.10. I am installing Mint 4.0 to the SATA. The BIOS is set to boot the SATA first. During install the default GRUB is hd0 which is correct but the Live CD thinks the PATA is hd0 which is wrong. To get around this I tell the install to install GRUB on hd1. When the install is all done I now have to fix grub so the system will boot. I have to edit every line that points to the the wrong place ie the install has root = hd1,0 for Mint well no it is hd0,0. hd1,0 is windows but the install has it as hd0,0 and ubuntu as hd0,1 when it should be hd1,0 and hd1,1. After I edit everything all boots well.
I do not know if this is known or not but this is annoying and will cause problems for beginners
