I have found the source of the problem and the solution(sort of) after some
Googling. It has been suggested by others and I believe Shane may even be aware
of this issue that either the new driver or libata is extremely picky in these
Kernels. As mentioned in comment #7, I have left the cd/dvd device in slave
position on the IDE cabling and jumper settings and encountered this problem.

When I placed the CD/DVD ROM device back on the master end of the IDE cable, it
worked flawlessly. I mean both drive devices are working and recognized by the
Kernel. This includes the Live CD. Essentially, I now have a device placed on
/hda and /hdb. It appears that the driver and/or libata creates a "No Device
present" situation if it does not find a device on the Master IDE Channel. The
driver essentially doesn't look any further than the Master Channel. If it
encounters no device then it doesn't poll for a second device on the slave

I will attach my boot log on this one so that you can see.
