on a computer with an IDE hard disk and an external SATA hard
disk, GRUB gives the SATA hard disk a number different number from the
one it gave during the installation process. First, menu.lst
looks like this:
title Ubuntu
          root (hd1,0)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sda1 initrd /boot/initrd

then I install GRUB:
sudo grub
root (hd1,0)
setup (hd1)

then GRUB tells me that the installation was successful, but when I
start the computer, Ubuntu starts with the configuration:

        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sda1
        initrd /boot/initrd

It appears that you install grub on hd1, which it is usually the second
hard disk from the bios point of view.
(As long as you have a first hard disk it would boot the first hard disk
instead of the second hard disk)

Do not you have any linux on ide hard disk and thus you're booting this one?

It would try to run setup (hd0) instead of setup (hd1) and tell us if it
fixes things.
