Before you try anything else, please make sure that the kernel you
compiled inside chroot contains the proper drivers like IDE, ext2, and
whatever you need to get those hde/hdf devices recognized by the kernel.
Without the proper drivers in the kernel, the kernel can't work with
those hde and hdf disks
