With the current release kernel, the IDE disk is detected fine. I hadn't
tested with that machine for a long time so I did suspect a generic
problem first. Downgrade the bug as you see fit.

The installer reports no disks found and advises to proceed with network
config after keyboad map selection. Nothing on console #3, nothing weird
in the kernel log. How are IDE disks located by the installer? /proc/ide
looks pretty much the same to me.
The 2.4 kernel has devfs enabled but not mounted on boot.
