I think if you set the partition type to FD with fdisk, the
system is supposed to figure everything out automatically
at boot time.  I have, however, had some trouble when moving
pairs of disks built on one machine to a different one and
would generally prefer to control it with a definition in a
file if possible instead of having the system guess. If you
have both, I'm not sure which wins.  If you find documentation
on the detection order or how to move devices, please post
a link.
