I know how to mount IDE drives, its normally not a problem... But for some reason it wont let me fdisk or mount either drive (and they both show up in the bios).

I have a machine running of SATA's, with debian and 2.6

CODE

debian:/# cat /etc/fstab
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
proc            /proc           proc    defaults        0       0
/dev/sda1       /               ext3    defaults,errors=remount-ro 0       1
/dev/sda6       /home           ext3    defaults        0       2
/dev/sda5       none            swap    sw              0       0
/dev/scd0       /media/cdrom0   iso9660 ro,user,noauto  0       0
/dev/sdb1  /data1  ext2  suid,dev,exec  0  0


CODE

debian:/# cat /etc/mtab
/dev/sda1 / ext3 rw,errors=remount-ro 0 0
proc /proc proc rw 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs rw 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts rw,gid=5,mode=620 0 0
tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs rw 0 0
usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs rw 0 0
/dev/sda6 /home ext3 rw 0 0
/dev/sdb1 /data1 ext2 rw 0 0


CODE

debian:/# cat /proc/mounts
rootfs / rootfs rw 0 0
/dev2/root2 / ext3 rw 0 0
proc /proc proc rw,nodiratime 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs rw 0 0

tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs rw 0 0
usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs rw 0 0
/dev/sda6 /home ext3 rw 0 0
/dev/sdb1 /data1 ext2 rw 0 0


CODE

debian:/# fdisk -l

Disk /dev/sda: 82.3 GB, 82348277760 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 10011 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sda1   *           1         851     6835626   83  Linux
/dev/sda2             852       10011    73577700    f  W95 Ext'd (LBA)

/dev/sda6            1040       10011    72067558+  83  Linux

Disk /dev/sdb: 82.3 GB, 82348277760 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 10011 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sdb1               1       10011    80413326   83  Linux



And finally.  Here is what I Get:
CODE

debian:/# fdisk /dev/hda

Unable to open /dev/hda
debian:/# fdisk /dev/hdb

Unable to open /dev/hdb

Ther problem is the sata drives.  I am not sure Debian Woody will come any where close to handling that.  Consider a net install of Debian Sarge instead.  It is close to being declared stable so I see few risks although you can always check the outstanding bugs.

It actually is a netinstall of debian sarge from just a few days ago.

Why would sata cause a problem reading from an IDE drive?

Are these scsi drives?  If so, they are not being recognised as such.  Check the Debian Sarge Preliniary Installation Guide for instructions or fialing that the Reference Manual.  You may also me making an entry error.  Try fdisk /dev/sda or fdisk /dev/sdb

They arent.  They are good ol IDE drives.  Granted they have NTFS on them, I should be able to FDSK them anyways.

NTFS has nothing to do with the problem.  What are they connected to?  I see /dev/sda in once place with fdisk -l and you are expecting another outcome with fdisk.

Well SDA and SDB is my two SATA drives.

I am trying to access (what I would except to be) HDA and HDB .  Two plain old IDE drives.  It doesnt make sense why I cant fdisk /dev/hda

DO you have two more drives or just the SATA drives?  All I see in what you have posted are SATA drives.  Where are thse drives connected?  To the sata connections or to the ide1 or 2  ports on the motherboard?
