if only that were an option for me. the decision (not mine) is that we will 
develop on 2.2.12. but that is a local political issue.....

the interesting this is this:

initially, i had the setup as 

with all jumpers (master/slave) appropriatly set.
and as previously noted, redhat 7.1 (2.4.2) saw the configuration, 
debian (2.2.12) did not.

do to double check jumpers, and just out of curiosity, i switched hdc and hdd.
now both linux's see all four drives. (which still begs the question why 
debian did not before.... but that is just a side issue now. it works.

thanks to martin for his kind help.
