Bug#418535: Grub on wrong HDD after Etch installation

Package: grub-installer
Version: 1.22

Hello, my computer has 2 hdd's, one serial ATA behind a Silicon Image 3112 chipset and one IDE as a secondary slave. I chose to install Etch (stable) on a partition in the serial ata drive (sda), which went on without problems. My motherboard, ABIT NF7-S rev 1.1 has an option in BIOS to boot from serial ATA, so naturally I assumed grub would be installed on the boot sector of sda. This wasn't the case, as grub was installed on the PATA (IDE) drive hdb. I was able to overcome this by simply choosing to boot from the IDE drive in BIOS, but I think this behavior warrants a fix.
