Unhappy systemimager: no hda found

hello,

after reading the interesting and promising systemimager howto
(http://www.falkotimme.com/howtos/systemimager/index.php) we decided to give it a chance

so, we download the package (we got SystemImager autoinstall v3.2.3) and installed

- systemimager-i386boot-standard (server)
- systemimager-i386initrd_template (golden-client)

and to deploy the image, we made the floppy disk install (SYSLINUX 2.100
2004-06-18) via dd and copying local.cfg to it

the image creation process in the gold-client was successful but... when
we want to recreate in another machine we have errors.. allegedly because
we have no hda!!

problem shown in http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/showthread.php?t=6456
is very similar to our problem... but dont get the solution

a extract of the info we get in the station

ide : Assuming 33MHz system bus speed for PIO modes; override with idebus=xx
hda : ST380011A, ATA Disk drive

I will now run the autoinstall script: /scripts/mi_imagen.master
get_arch
