I would advise *NOT* doing that section of the instructions.  I think the 
person who wrote the HOWTO was misguided in writing it.

What he imagined he was doing: making an explicit menu item in GRUB that would 
allow booting from the second hard drive, for use when the first one has 

If the first hard drive fails, though, the other hard drive would be detected 
as the first (available) hard drive at boot, and "(hd0,0)" would be used to 
boot it.  So, no modifications to grub are required; one just needs to make 
sure to make the second drive bootable.
