Ok. I see that somehow the slave drive got configured as the boot drive, and probably the grub boot loader got installed there by mistake, resulting in your need to tell the system to boot from the slave. You should be able to rewrite the grub boot loader to the master drive (/dev/hda) so that it will vector properly to the /dev/hdb1 partition to boot the system. You should be able to use the grub-install tool to do that. Unfortunately I have never needed to do this, so caveat user! Make sure you backup everything first!
