there is nothing like that in debian. if you want, you may just grab
suse's idea/scripts.
however, debian offers a script (update-rc.d), which you can use to
modify all the script-links in rc?.d, so it's not that hard to do.

modifying the boot script which loads default.map.gz or looking for some
config-file - i don't know, what's the supposed way of doing this.

does windoze boot, if you physically swap the drives? if yes, then all is
fine. however, think of installing lilo in /dev/hdb with a modified
config before swapping the disks, otherwise you'll not be able to boot
linux anymore (except with a boot disk).
