SATA, 2.6, make-kpg and grub

When building and installing a 2.6 kernel image using "make-kpkg
buildpackage .." and "dpkg -i" on a sarge box with 2.4 running and a SATA
disk, the grub configuration is not updated correctly. In 2.4, SATA disks
get device names of type /dev/hde, but in 2.6 (libata driver), scsi naming
is used (e.g /dev/sda). After installing the image, "root=/dev/hde1"
option is passed to the 2.6 kernel, which causes a kernel panic. Editing
the file solves the problem, but shouldn't this be done automatically?
