Not sure what we can do about that...  If the kernel should be
compiled differently, please file a bug against
kernel-image-2.2.18pre21-udma66 .

Hmmm.  So /dev/hdg is the drive you want to install on?  It seemed
like you wanted to install to hdh ?  

You should be able to run 'cfdisk /dev/hdh' in the 2nd virtual

However, I need you to resend this report, this time filed as a bug.
The bug here is that hdg and hdh are not showing up as possible disks
for partitioning.  Please make it priority "important".
