yeah i think that is a known problem, for some odd reason alot of
powermacs seem to skip right over hdb, hdc.. and go from hda -> hde.
doesn't make sense to me, there is still only a primary and secondary
IDE bus on apple hardware, and IDE is IDE, it can only have a master
and a slave... (hda -> hdd should be it)
