+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #428119 +++

I've installed Beta2 on a machine with 11.0 on it. Here is the menu.lst of the
original 11.0 installation:

Now here is menu.lst after installing Beta2:

Meaning: I get no choice for booting the old installation.

And now the Beta 2 device map:

device.map
(hd1) /dev/disk/by-id/scsi-SATA_SAMSUNG_SV0411NS01RJ20X314898
(fd0) /dev/fd0
(hd2) /dev/disk/by-id/scsi-SATA_Maxtor_6Y080P0_Y24HTNBE
(hd0) /dev/disk/by-id/ata-WDC_WD2500BB-98GUC0_WD-WCAL76998618

But the correct order would be:

(hd0) /dev/disk/by-id/scsi-SATA_SAMSUNG_SV0411NS01RJ20X314898
(fd0) /dev/fd0
(hd1) /dev/disk/by-id/scsi-SATA_Maxtor_6Y080P0_Y24HTNBE
(hd2) /dev/disk/by-id/ata-WDC_WD2500BB-98GUC0_WD-WCAL76998618

Meaning: System won't boot without changing the boot device order manually in
BIOS after installation.

Workaround: change boot device order manually in BIOS after installation
