What are "/dev/hde" and "/dev/hdf" in #fdisk -l


hello all,
Here is the o/p of someone's #fdisk -l

Quote:
linux:~ # fdisk -l

Disk /dev/hde: 300.0 GB, 300069052416 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 36481 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hde1 * 1 36480 293025568+ 7 HPFS/NTFS

Disk /dev/hdf: 300.0 GB, 300069052416 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 36481 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hdf1 1 131 1052226 82 Linux swap / Solaris
/dev/hdf2 132 36481 291981375 83 Linux
My question is....how its "hde" and "hdf" ???
i haven't heard about that.
What i know is :
hda --> Primary master
hdb --> Primary slave
hdc --> Secondary master
hdd --> Secondary slave

regards

Looks like they have 3 ATA controllers (or devices pretending to be ATA controllers) and those drives are connected to the 3rd.
