LaTeX: hyperref/algorithm interaction

According to the hyperref documentation, the algorithm package should be loaded after hyperref:
algorithm:
\usepackage{hyperref}
\usepackage[chapter]{algorithm}% eg.
According to the hyperref documentation, all packages should be loaded before hyperref:
If you do the first, you get this annoying set of warnings:
! pdfTeX warning (ext4): destination with the same identifier (name{page.1}) has been already used, duplicate ignored
If you do the second, you get an error:
undefined control sequence \theHalgorithm
Clearly, the first is preferable to the second, but even the first is terribly annoying. Does anyone have any ideas on how this can be fixed ?

Update: It works ! A comment from Iain Murray points out that in the hyperref README, one is told to include the float package BEFORE hyperref , and only then include algorithm (after hyperref).
