Description of problem:
I loaded FC4 onto a system with two hard disks (A and B) and one DVD/CDRW combo unit (/dev/hdc). Later, I added a hard disk to the second IDE chain. I left the CD drive as the master and made the new hard disk the slave on the second ide chain. My BIOS correctly identified everything on the IDE controller but FC4 did not detect the DVD/CD device. I have played with the slave/master/cable-select jumpers on both drives. I have replaced the IDE cable. In all cases, FC4 does not detect the DVD/CD device when the hard disk is present. I removed the hard disk from the system and FC4 again recognized the DVD/CD device, created /dev/hdc and /media/cdrecorder. It also put an entry for /media/cdrecorder into /etc/fstab.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. re-attach hard disk as slave on 2nd IDE
2. boot system
3. fail to find /dev/hdc, fail to find /media/cdrecorder
Actual Results: CDROM is unusable
Expected Results: I expected that my DVD/CD device would continue to work in the same way it used to work.
CD device is _NEC DVD_RW ND-3540A

Driver Version: 3.38

Revision: ISA 0x0 IDE 0x6
MAKEDEV only creates and removes device nodes, and at this point it's really
only there for situations that the kernel/udev/haldaemon trio don't handle yet.
For reference purposes, can you post the versions of the kernel, udev, and hal
packages which you have installed? I'm going to reassign this bug to udev, but
the exact versions of the other participants is probably going to be useful
What's the output of:
$ ls -l /proc/ide/
in case of the attached harddisk?
Sorry for the delay - I had to have the system working so I plugged in
an old IDE card and just moved the hard disk to it. I had to wait for
an idle time to bring the system down to reconfigure it to the failing

CD was expected at hdc but it's not there.
/var/log/messages only mentioned hdc once with an interesting error nearby:

reassigning to kernel
Mass update to all FC4 bugs:
An update has been released (2.6.14-1.1637_FC4) which rebases to a new upstream
kernel (184.108.40.206). As there were ~3500 changes upstream between this and the
previous kernel, it's possible your bug has been fixed already.
Please retest with this update, and update this bug if necessary.
This is a mass-update to all currently open kernel bugs.
A new kernel update has been released (Version: 2.6.15-1.1830_FC4)
based upon a new upstream kernel release.
Please retest against this new kernel, as a large number of patches
go into each upstream release, possibly including changes that
may address this problem.
This bug has been placed in NEEDINFO_REPORTER state.
Due to the large volume of inactive bugs in bugzilla, if this bug is
