Unfortunately, "to" and "from" depend on the point of view.  From the
GRUB standpoint, "drivemap hd1 hd0" remaps "from hd1 to hd0", so that
our hd1 becomes hd0 for the OS.  From the OS standpoint, the same
command remaps "from hd0 to hd1", since the calls to hd0 (or C: or hda)
are routed to hd1.

I think maybe "real disk" and "emulated disk" would be clear, but I
don't feel it would be a big improvement over "GRUB disk" and "OS disk".
