Drives are not being detected
I'm running stable woody 3.0r2.
I originally installed the machine with 2 hard drives on the primary ide controller and a cd drive as master on the secondary controller. I installed off cd and everything came up fine.
I've now tried to add a third hard drive onto the secondary ide controller. I think I got the master/slave settings conflicting when I first tried to bring the system up - I didn't have a monitor on the box when bringing it up the first couple times. The box came up ok and the 2 drives on the primary controller were all good, but nothing from the secondary controller. I put a monitor on to see what was going on, the bios was detecting everything ok, but I still couldn't see anything from inside of linux for the secondary controller. The bios was displaying this message:
secondary ide channel no 80 conductor cable installed
Which looks like I should be using a different cable, but shouldn't stop things from working?
I've now disconnected the new harddrive so I'm back to the original setup of 2 hard drives on the primary and a cd drive as master on the secondary. The bios sees everything fine - no warnings about the 80 conductor cable. But still no sign of the cd drive inside off linux?? This is the same cd I installed the system from.
The following shows that linux is not seeing anything from the second controller:

Any advice on how I can get linux to see the cdrom again would be greatly appreciated!
