I just installed (frugal) Precise Puppy 5.6.1 on about a 4 year old desktop computer. This computer has builtin IDE and SATA controllers.

When I did the install there was only one hard drive, an 80gb IDE drive, and everything worked just fine.

I bought two 1TB SATA drives and installed them (in removable drive bays). When I tried to boot, I got a message that puppy is unable to find the precise_5.6.1.sfs file and it drops to a command line.

If I disconnect the SATA drives everything works fine again.

The SATA drives are recognized in the bios, and the boot order places them after the IDE drive.

What can I do so that I have full use of all my drives?

Likely boot from live cd both times (IDE | SATA}

and have a look into /proc/partitions
and issue
Code:
rdev
in the terminal
to define the root drive
and adjust grub's menu.lst entries accordingly .
