I am facing a strange problem . with the harddisk detection when using Fedora
Core and slackware 12.
When i install Fedora core 7 on my HP dc7600 machine . The harddisks are
detected as "hda". If I install slackware 12 on the same machine the
harddisks are detected as "sda".
I am not sure why this is happening. This is causing me a lot of grief because
when ever i download the latest kernel on the slackware setup and compile it
correctly. the newer kernel detects the hardisk as "hda" and not "sda" .
The /etc/fstab file for mounting the partitions will be wrong in case of
newer kernel and booting does not work for my newer kernels. My newer kernels
all boot fine on fedore core 7 based machines.
I am using the .config file found on the slackware 12 install CD.
I then run "make oldconfig" on the same config and then proceed with
Let me know if i am forgetting to set some options in "make menuconfig"
waiting for u r response.
