Drives and partitions quastion

Forums: 

If anyone can help me, it would be great...

using the command fdisk -l should list my hard drives and their partitions.

if the drive is:
1) /dev/sda* > it's a SATA drive
2) /dev/hda* > it's an IDE drive

This is as far as I understood from my readings...

So, checking the boot config file grub.cfg, I cant find anything with /dev/sda*, and all the roots are /dev/hd0, while using fdisk -l to list my disks, I cant find anything mentioning any hd0 or anything related to hd*, they are all sda..

how can this happen?

I have only one HDD attached...
