I've created a freakish dual-boot machine using WinXP on an ATA RAID card and Gentoo on the primary IDE channel. When I initially installed Gentoo, I had the RAID disabled in the bios--everything installed smoothly and behaved normally when I was finished, including the CDROM drive, which was /dev/hdc. I later compiled in the appropriate kernel support for the RAID and reenabled it in the bios. hda and hdc became the two drives on the RAID, while hde and hdg became the hard disk housing Gentoo and the CDROM, respectively. Gentoo still operates normally with no complaints, and my dual-boot setup works wonderfully, but now the CDROM refuses to work. when I try mount /mnt/cdrom (with an appropriate entry in fstab), I get the ubiquitous "wrong fs type, bad superblock, or too many mounted partitions" error. If I get really fancy (or stupid, depending on your perspective) and try mount /dev/ide/host2/bus1/target0/lun0/cd /mnt/cdrom, I get an IO error. So far as I can tell, the permissions on the related /devs are what they should be. Someone nearby is buzzing about "too many ide devices." What gives? Has anyone else encountered this?
