This worked.

But I have to say, I don't know why.
It is the third harddisk in the system, and it's definitifly the slave on
second IDE-port.

During the installation I had to identify the disk with ad3.

How can grub mix the harddisks up and set this one to hd1?
Is there any logic behind?

Can't definitively explain this one. I'm assuming your first IDE port has a
CD/DVD drive and the first disk?  The *only* guess I have is that Grub, in
fact, does only count existing hard drives and didn't find one of the first
two (for whatever reason). Other than that, I got nothing. Anyway, glad you
got it working.

Anyway I already have the next problem: How to start KDE
But I'll check the Handbook first and start a new thread if I don't


Good luck!
