From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0)

Description of problem:
On a abit bp6 with primary/secondary onboard ide (hda-d), hpt366 
(disabled) and a promise ultra66/ataraid controller, roswell sees only 
drives on the first ide header (/dev/hde) and not on the second 
(/dev/hdg).  The drives are not raided by the promise card.  The kernel 
sees them with redhat 7.1.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install appropriate hardware
2.boot system
3.count ide drives and corresponding device nodes

Actual Results:  you don't see the drives on the second promise 
ultra66/ataraid header.

Expected Results:  You should see these (/dev/hdg /dev/hdh)

Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2001-08-30 14:06:53 UTC
Indeed the kernel should see them.
Could you please try the 2.4.7-2.18 kernel at
(kernels are in the i686 and athlon directories and the mkinitrd in the i386

I have tried this with the test kernel, with no success.  Here is the relevant 
(?) info from /var/log/dmesg.

Can you paste the output of both "lspci" and "lspci -n" so I can see which exact
promise controller this is ?

Here's lspci and lspci -n
