my hdd controller is supported by both as IDE and SATA.
at live cd if booted using  libata option, it find disk as /dev/sda
otherwise /dev/hda.
i installed it on /dev/sda2, then compiled kernel and i think IDE
driver is already compiled in kernel monolithicly and not as module.
 kernel boot line is
/boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sda2
i also tried root=/dev/hda2 and root=8:2 also.
