Default Additional Hard Drive Installation Problem


I have been running Ubuntu 6.06 for a few months without problem. I decided to add a new hard drive for additional storage (250GB). It is a Western Digital IDE. The OS is on a Western Digital IDE 16 GB.

After installed, the BIOS shows the new drive properly. Then when Ubuntu is starting, it shows the normal GUI and the normal startup messages. It gets to Starting the Root File System and then goes to the non-GUI screen stating it cannot find /dev/hdc1.

If I disconnect the new drive, everything comes up OK. Since GRUB is running whether the new drive is connected or not, it seems to be connecting to the correct drive in the first place.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you.
