Not long ago I had a similar situation, and here are the work notes (which were posted in the mailing list somewhere):
Changing woody from hdb to hda howto.
Final Version (with Grub)
1. Boot with the installation CD (any should work, I used #1).
2. Press F3 for information about possibilities (may be skipped?)
3. type rescue root=/dev/hda1
4. type in password for root, remount to write as indicated.
5. Change /etc/fstab to reflect hda instead of hdb.
6. Run grub-install /dev/hda
7. Run update-grub.
8. Edit /boot/grub/menu.1st as needed.
11. Contribute to the community.
If you use lilo instead of grub, make the following substitutions:
5. Edit /etc/lilo.conf to indicate the change.
6. Run lilo to update your system.
