Yes.  ide0 is the first IDE controller.  Immediately following that line
will be lines for each device attached to it.  On my system (ATAPI CD-ROM as
the only device on the IDE controller) it looks like this:

ide0 at 0x1f0-0x1f7,0x3f6 on irq 14
hda: ATAPI 40X CD-ROM drive, 256kB Cache, UDMA(33)

This would probably get more attention and help on debian-user.  Is there
some part of the installation documentation that directs users here for this
kind of problem?  The lists.debian.org pages make it clear that this list is
for boot-floppies development.
