[plug] grub query in mixed sata / pata setup

Ive had a number of pata/sata systems now that come up with a different
device order when booted into the installed system vice the installer.
I suspect the installer can identify more devices than the boot kernel,
or perhaps devices are recognised in a different order.

If you can identify what the mapping is, you can manually modify the
menu/boot sectors to match (i.e., the "root" coomand in both grub and
for the kernel argument) - sometimes takes a few goes ...

Yes, its a real pain!
