It sound as if you have a BIOS setting wrong and the default settings usually are. Re-connect everything. Go into the BIOS setup and check:
1. Plug 'n Pray is turned off.
2. You should be able to find a drives section and perhaps an auto-detect for them. If not, set the settings for the drives as you have them connected.
3. Disable any on-board stuff if you have pci/AGP cards installed and you want to use them instead.
You might want to post your /etc/fstab file for inspection.
