Notice ... hda/hdb  is 255 heads  in the CHS  ( same ide cable )

also notice, you're running a ata-33(hdb) device with a ata-66 drive(hda)
on the same cable...
	move hdb to hdd  instead ( other ide cable )

just another way for the bios map the real c/h/s to another mapped c/h/s
so that the whole 20GB disk is accessible

it seems different ide controllers and different cables seems
to map the c/h/s differently...

nothing to worry about ... assume the bios knows what its doing
