There is a single SATA HDD in the machine.
Also attached during the install was a memory stick drive (appears as
USB storage).
Partitioning in the installer correctly labelled the HDD as sda and
the MS as sdb.

On boot (kernel=2.6.18-3-686, bootloader=grub) the system labelled MS
as sda (even when there was no MS in the drive).
So obviously, the system will not boot with this device plugged in.
