Kernel building for scsi hard drives

Hey guys

I was wondering if anyone has ever built a kernel for an on-board scsi hard drive. I have a system with an ATA hard drive (aparently, it's scsi???). I compiled the 2.6.2 compiles fine but when it boots, it says that it can't find the device. (I should have copied it down. if you need it, I'll repost.)

Here is what's on my grub.conf:

title Fedora Core-up (2.4.22-1.2115.nptl)
        root (hd0,1)
        kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl ro root=LABEL=/ hdc=ide-scsi rhgb
        initrd /boot/initrd-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl.img
title Vanilla Kernel - infamious sohmc brew (2.6.2)
        root (hd0,1)
        kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.2 ro root=/dev/sda2 hdc=ide-scsi
The 'Fedora Core-up' is the one that works fine (more or less) and boots correctly. Whereas the the 'Vanilla Kernel' does not.

Any thoughts?
