I just got bitten bi a similar issue.

I hav:
SATA 1 - /dev/sda
SATA 2 - /dev/sdb
PATA 1 - /dev/hdb

In mi ASUS/nVidia BIOS, the boot configuration is:
CD-ROM
SATA
SCSI
HDD (meening PATA/IDE)

Installing Ubuntu 6.06 from the Live CD resulted in an unbootable sistem. I just see "GRUB GRUB GRUB" heeps ov times.

Mi /boot/grub/device.map had:
(hd0) /dev/hdb
(hd1) /dev/sda
(hd2) /dev/sdb

I'v manually chanjed this to:
(hd0) /dev/sda
(hd1) /dev/sdb
(hd2) /dev/hdb

to be consistent with mi BIOS boot order, then reinstalld grub. Hopefully it werks!
