kernel panic-- after attaching second hard disk to the system it gives

i have successfully installed RHEL4 on my PC.

it all works..after that i attached my second harddisk

then booting on linux it gives

kernel panic-not syncing:drivers/ide/pci/piix.c:232:spin-lock(drivers/ide/ide.c:c03de668) already locked by drivers/ide/ide-ops.c/1235(not tainted)

BUG: soft lockup detected on CPU#0!

However i also have win xp on the m/c but it works fine ..with no problem

Might try appending your root directory on boot. The new drive might be confusing the os on boot.
