while that should not change sda to hda, there is one possiblity.
currently there are 2 pata and 2 sata drivers in the kernel. the libata
drivers are the ones currently recommended for sata (be carefull, you
also need scsi disk support to be able to access the disks), and they
have some experimental support for pata too. the old ata drivers (that
register their drives under /dev/hdX as ide devices) also have some sata
support, though it is discouraged to use it, since the sata support
there is not activly developed anymore to my knowlege.
