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
