First, hope you are using Linux 1.1.76 or above.
Second, hope you ran the script
/usr/src/linux/drivers/block/MAKEDEV.ide1 to creat the correct hd[cd]?
Finally, Linux currently doesn't read the CMOS setup for the 3rd/4th
drives. If the auto-detection of Linux doesn't work for some reasons,
then you can specify/override the geometry of the drive with the
kernel command line arguments
where cyl, heads & sect are ...you know what. If you are using lilo
you can put something like the following in /etc/lilo.conf
append = "hdc=1024,10,17"
