What's a "sled drive"?

Anyway, when the LCD broke on my main laptop, and I sent it for a 
repair, I took out the hard drive, put it in an external USB box and 
hooked it up on an Asus EEEpc 701.

Except that I had to update the initramfs to include the usb drivers 
(ehci_hcd, uhci_hcd, usb_storage, sd_mod) I don't remember doing 
anything else special.

fstab was already configured to mount by uuid, grub2 too.
