I leave it up to those with write access to the English Site. I Need to
write this in CVS.

This was with Skolelinux v 1.0 (venus)

No, (hd0,4) # not (hda0,4)
This is interprented by grub as the first disk (no matter if it's ide
or scsi) (hd0)
And then the grub uses zerobased numbering of the partition, so on an
ide-based machine
 (hd0,0) would normally mean /dev/hda1
 (hd1,3) would typically mean /dev/hdc4 (or /dev/hdb4)

so (hd0,4) means /dev/hda5 on my laptop
