Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu I've been an Arch user for roughly 3 years. I'm pretty much familiar with it all - The way it boots, its configuration and its package management. I've also heard a lot of good things about Ubuntu, and wanted to try it for a long time. So, two weeks ago, I took the plunge. These are my findings.

I have a sourcemage gnu/linux installation with the 2.6.20 kernel and it still sees my hard drive as hda.

I hope that you understand what would happen if Ubuntu would switch from hda to sda within 1 version release....
(hint 99% of ubuntu users with formerly hda devices would scream that kernel panics and can't boot)

Anyway, since 2.6.19 you can eaither select old way of device naming (separate hda and sda) or new (experimental) way of naming: all pata and sata are sda now.

This has not much to do with Arch but more to do with kernel development. Simply read lklm.
