how to stop SATA probe during boot?


the boot process on my system is delayed about 30 seconds because the Linux kernel is probing for hdg, which does not exist (hdg would correspond to the second drive connected to my pci SATA controller, ide3). Finally, when it realizes that the drive doesn't exist, i get the message

hdg:  no response (status = 0xfe)
i've tried adding the following to the kernel boot commands, but the drive is still probed

kernel		/vmlinuz-2.4.26-1-386 root=/dev/hde2 ro ignore=hdg
initrd		/initrd.img-2.4.26-1-386 ignore=hdg
what else can i try? thanks for your thoughts.
