It is not clear from your message if you checked that the kernel sees the 
device in the question.
Run dmesg|less, you'll see if it did.
If it doesn't show the full kernel namespace's name, like 
/dev/ide/host1/....., try to reboot with a partitioned floppy inserted in 
your in LS-120.
For ide and scsi you'll hopefully see the full name as it exists in the 
kernel namespace, i.e. /dev/ide/host0/bus1/....
>From this point it will be clearer what to do next.
