Yes, but memory sticks do appear as HDs.  If yours doesn't then it's a
bug.  The problem you had with grub is that the BIOS puts your USB stick
as first disk and your actual disk as second disk, and thus when you
don't plug it things change.  To fix it you need to re-run grub-install
to fix the MBR of your disk (update-grub would only update menu.lst with
the list of kernels that appear in /boot).
