That's SCSI talk. IDE goes different:
The first IDE controller has devices hda, hdb, hdc and hdd.
hda is master on the first ide bus, hdb slave on the first ide bus,
hdc and hdd are master and slave on the second ide bus.
On my system the Promise Ultra DMA 66 controller is the second ide
controller, having the third and fourth ide busses (ide 2 & ide3).
This makes the Master ide device on the first ide bus of the
promise card /dev/hde.
My system (currently) has no hda and hdb. hdc is a CD ROM. hdd is
a IDE ZIP drive. hde is the hard disk.
So you probably should mount /dev/hde1, to mount the first partition
on the Master drive on the first ide bus on the second ide controller
in your system...
