What distrabution? In Red Hat 7.2, I use two Hard drives, and two CD drives. Unlike what you have written, mine are labeled:

hda1
hdb2
cdrom
cdrom1


I am confused as to why Linux would set your CD drives as hard drives?

hdX is simplay a reference to an IDE drive, not necessarily a hard disk. bpestilence, if you do 'ls -l /dev/cdrom' it'll point to /dev/hdc or such like.

if your ide card is setup up normally, you will have hde/f and so forth. run 'fdisk -l' to show the conected hard drives and their partitions

You might want to look at your /var/log/boot.msg - mine looks like this...
Code:
<6>Uniform Multi-Platform E-IDE driver Revision: 6.31
<4>ide: Assuming 33MHz system bus speed for PIO modes; override with idebus=xx
<4>PIIX4: IDE controller on PCI bus 00 dev 21
<4>PCI: Enabling device 00:04.1 (0000 -> 0001)
<4>PIIX4: chipset revision 1
<4>PIIX4: not 100%% native mode: will probe irqs later
<4>PIIX4: neither IDE port enabled (BIOS)
<4>PDC20262: IDE controller on PCI bus 00 dev 58
<6>PCI: Found IRQ 10 for device 00:0b.0
<4>PDC20262: chipset revision 1
<4>PDC20262: not 100%% native mode: will probe irqs later
<4>PDC20262: (U)DMA Burst Bit ENABLED Primary PCI Mode Secondary PCI Mode.
<4>    ide0: BM-DMA at 0x8800-0x8807, BIOS settings: hda:pio, hdb:pio
<4>    ide1: BM-DMA at 0x8808-0x880f, BIOS settings: hdc:pio, hdd:pio
<4>PDC20262: IDE controller on PCI bus 00 dev 60
<6>PCI: Found IRQ 11 for device 00:0c.0
<4>PDC20262: chipset revision 1
<4>PDC20262: not 100%% native mode: will probe irqs later
<4>PDC20262: (U)DMA Burst Bit ENABLED Primary PCI Mode Secondary PCI Mode.
<4>    ide2: BM-DMA at 0x7000-0x7007, BIOS settings: hde:pio, hdf:pio
<4>    ide3: BM-DMA at 0x7008-0x700f, BIOS settings: hdg:pio, hdh:pio
<4>hda: MAXTOR 6L060L3, ATA DISK drive
<4>hdc: MAXTOR 6L060L3, ATA DISK drive
<4>hde: MAXTOR 6L060L3, ATA DISK drive
<4>ide0 at 0xa000-0xa007,0x9802 on irq 10
<4>ide1 at 0x9400-0x9407,0x9002 on irq 10
<4>ide2 at 0x8400-0x8407,0x8002 on irq 11
<6>hda: 117266688 sectors (60041 MB) w/1819KiB Cache, CHS=116336/16/63, UDMA(66)
<6>hdc: 117266688 sectors (60041 MB) w/1819KiB Cache, CHS=116336/16/63, UDMA(66)
<6>hde: 117266688 sectors (60041 MB) w/1819KiB Cache, CHS=116336/16/63, UDMA(66)
This is from a system with two Promise ATA/66 controllers and three 60Gb drives (a small RAID5 array) with the root filesystem living on a pair of SCSI 9Gb Cheetahs.

If your system can't see the drive it may the case that you need kernel support for the controller. If you could tell us which one you're using...
