I ran into this too. I don't think the installer can do much if BIOS renumbers the disks, but it could make sure that GRUB is in fact installed on the right disk, and it could use LABEL or UUID by default to identify partitions in /etc/fstab. It might also display a warning when it finds that the installation medium is /dev/sda-something and the target medium is /dev/sd-something-else, perhaps even asking the user if the device numbers in /boot/grub/menu.lst should be decremented by one. -- Magnus Holmgren email@example.com (No Cc of list mail needed, thanks)
