grub won't let me remove a drive!

I have 4 drives in my system - 1 of which I no longer use.  I'd like to
remove it, but when I do, I get an Error 21 from Grub.

The device map is:

(hd0)   /dev/sdb
(hd1)   /dev/sdc
(hd2)   /dev/sdd
(hd3)   /dev/sda

The drive I'd like to remove is (hd1) (/dev/sdc).
The funny thing is, this drive isn't mentioned anywhere (that I can
find) in the Grub configuration.

For example, there's /etc/grub.conf:

  setup --stage2=/boot/grub/stage2 (hd0) (hd3,0)

And menu.lst:

  $ grep hd1  /boot/grub/menu.lst

And in particular:

  ###Don't change this comment - YaST2 identifier: Original name: linux###
  title openSUSE 10.3
      root (hd3,0)
      kernel /boot/vmlinuz- root=/dev/sda1 vga=0x34b
      initrd /boot/initrd-

(let me know if I should post the whole thing).

Can anybody recommend anything before I switch to LILO?
