I was using coLinux (virtual debian on a win XP box) happily for about a year. Our company was recently bought out and there new it policies have been invoked and stuffs coLinux ( they do not allow us to share Ethernet cards and coLinux uses this for its external connectivity)
The solution they have given me is VMWare. Now My machine is a dual booter with Ubuntu and XP. I have created a virtual machine using my hard disk and it boots up Grub and starts to the boot process when I select Ubuntu. The problem is I have a Sata drive.
If I boot Ubuntu normally all my partitions are sdaX in vmware they show up as hdaX. Is there a way, from grub or what ever to fool Ubuntu to using hda as sda ?
Oh, look at me! I'm making people happy. I'm the magical man from
Happyland in a gumdrop house on Lollipop Laaane! Oh, by the way, I
was being sarcastic.
