I have seen the same problem on my girlfriend's PC, which is all-IDE -
tho' the HD is SATA and the DVDRW is PATA. It also manifests in
Xandros & Knoppix, as well as both 32-bit and 64-bit Ubuntu 5.10 and
I attribute it to a new and not-yet-properly-supported motherboard or
something. I'm waiting for the next release, then I'll try again.
Sorry not to be of more help.
