you shouldn't need to download anything. do

cat /proc/ide/hdX/driver

where X is the letter of the device:
a=primary master
b=primary master
c=secondary master
d=secondary slave

it should have correctly identified the drive. There is no reason to presume otherwise unless you're havig a specific problem
