Can't definitively explain this one. I'm assuming your first IDE port has a
CD/DVD drive and the first disk? The *only* guess I have is that Grub, in
fact, does only count existing hard drives and didn't find one of the first
two (for whatever reason). Other than that, I got nothing. Anyway, glad you
got it working.
Anyway I already have the next problem: How to start KDE
