As u can see fedora 8 reads the IDE drives as sd*, while knoppix reads its
correctly according to the convention as hd*. What can be the problem? I
want fedora 8 to be reading my secondary hardisk.

/dev/hdX versus /dev/sdX is not a matter of correct versus incorrect, its an intentional change started in F8 for all hard drive devices to be treated as scsi whether ide or not. The knoppix kernel is not doing this and so still identifies it as hdX. I don't know the cause of your problem but its not that detail.

The portion snipped out above looks like the real issue here, with zero hardware sectors found. This should probably go directly into bugzilla against the kernel.

Make sure to get the kenrel and udev versions you have in the report (don't know that from your email).
