SATA issues with 2.6.18 and Dell Poweredge SC420

My primary HDD is on SATA. My secondary HDD is on SATA through a PATA --> SATA adapter.

Everything works quite nicely under 2.6.17 (any version). Under 2.6.18, my primary HDD is detected just fine, but the secondary is not. It's hard for me to do any real diagnosis since I'm 2000 miles away from my computer (and will be for several months), but I'd like to know what I can check. All requisite hooks were present in the mkinitcpio conf file, and mkinitcpio's output suggested that it parsed them OK. Why would one SATA drive get picked up while the other is not?

I verified that it is not a hardware issue by reverting to 2.6.17. All drives were detected appropriately. Thanks for your insight!
