no response (status = 0xfe) boot "error"


My problem might be quite easy to fix, but possibly not. I am running RH 9.0 with 2.4.20-9 kernel and everything is booting fine except for the following problem: When I boot, about 1/3 of the way through, I receive what seems to be an error. Here is some of my dmesg output:

1 : NFORCE2: IDE controller at PCI slot 00:09.0
2 : NFORCE2: chipset revision 162
3 : NFORCE2: not 100% native mode: will probe irqs later
4 : ide0: BM-DMA at 0xf000-0xf007, BIOS settings: hda:DMA, hdb:DMA
5 : ide1: BM-DMA at 0xf008-0xf00f, BIOS settings: hdc:DMA, hdd:DMA
6 : SiI3112 Serial ATA: IDE controller at PCI slot 01:0b.0
7 : SiI3112 Serial ATA: chipset revision 2
8 : SiI3112 Serial ATA: not 100% native mode: will probe irqs later
9 : ide2: MMIO-DMA at 0xe080d000-0xe080d007, BIOS settings: hde:pio, hdf:pio
10: ide3: MMIO-DMA at 0xe080d008-0xe080d00f, BIOS settings: hdg:pio, hdh:pio
11: hda: WDC WD800BB-00CAA0, ATA DISK drive
12: hdb: WDC WD800JB-00ETA0, ATA DISK drive
13: blk: queue c03be900, I/O limit 4095Mb (mask 0xffffffff)
14: blk: queue c03bea44, I/O limit 4095Mb (mask 0xffffffff)
15: hdc: TDK CDRW321040X, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive
16: hdd: SAMSUNG CD-ROM SC-152L, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive
17: hde: no response (status = 0xfe)
18: hdg: no response (status = 0xfe)
19: ide0 at 0x1f0-0x1f7,0x3f6 on irq 14
20: ide1 at 0x170-0x177,0x376 on irq 15
21: hda: host protected area => 1
22: hda: 156301488 sectors (80026 MB) w/2048KiB Cache, CHS=9729/255/63, UDMA(33)
23: hdb: host protected area => 1
24: hdb: 156301488 sectors (80026 MB) w/8192KiB Cache, CHS=9729/255/63, UDMA(33)

My problem is on line #17 and #18. Each line takes about 30-45 seconds to display. I'm wondering if there is some file or anything that could be edited to bypass this or take it out all together. If you know anything about this or have any suggestions, they would be greatly appreciated. If you need any more output from dmesg or any of my system specs, please just ask.
Thanks

check your fstab.conf file and try to figure out what hde and hdg actually are. It is possible your cdrom(s)?


17: hde: no response (status = 0xfe)
18: hdg: no response (status = 0xfe)

Are you sure there are no other HD's or partitions in there anywhere?

Try resetting the bios defaults too. It may be telling the OS to look at these two partitions when in fact they don't exist.

I do have another partition.... /dev/hda
That would be my Windows partition. Other than that, there is nothing.
