Do you have an Internal IDE, Christer???

Linux has serious problems when using IDE and SCSI at once... I couldn't 
even get it to run without the SCSI detached. I have heard some people 
claiming that they use both without problems, but I've never seen it work 
in reality. I have seen the original binary work on a machine running 
SCSI alone, without the internal IDE.

My own version is compiled for use with SCSI only, and can't access the 
IDE whatsoever.
