GRUB only supports the first 8 IDE disks (hda to hdh on Linux). Linux
supports up to hdt, i.e. 20 IDE disks. As the Ubuntu installer maintainer,
I've had a report from an Ubuntu user (https://launchpad.net/bugs/94642)
whose GRUB installation failed because the root filesystem is on /dev/hdl1.
Is there any reason not to change "for (i = 0; i < 8; i++)" to "for (i = 0; i
< 20; i++)" for IDE disks?
