the drive is ata and it shows up with both the new and ubuntu patched 
kernel, it even detects the partition as ext3 ( it is correct ) but it 
does not mount it.... ( in the newer kernels downloaded downloaded and 
built from kernel.org )

Its bloody wierd... i never had the problem in debian... still dont.. 
just in all my ubuntu's... it affects different drives.. i dont know if 
it has something to do with the "active-ness" of the partition ( i doubt 
it ) but it must be something... why doesnt that drive come up and my 
other does just fine.

im not sure.. might be a version conflict between kernel and gnu's mount 
or something .
