Cant install Mandrake 9.0 on a slave hd to w2k server

specs-- K7n2 with serial ata raid (hard drives not using raid)
WD 40 gig hard drives, Master with W2k server ,NTFS,
and Slave is 20 gig ext2 with a 500 MG swap
XP 2500+ cpu 512mb ddr
When i boot to the cd for install i get 1 page of text, the bottom of the page shows hda , hdb
hdc , hdd (or something like that)
and says the ide driver is not recognized. Could this be because
before this latest install of windows i was using the raid driver?
I am currently using only IDE 1 and 2, not raid
Sorry if this message is dissjointed, but my eyes are killing me and im spent from staring at this monitor hoping it will come up with an answer.
