promises and primaries.

I am trying to install Linux on a PIII 550 with a Promise UDMA Ultra 66 controller card. I have a second hard drive on the primary IDE controller that I would like to install Linux on. When I boot into the install and come to Disk Druid or any other mechanism for partitioning I see only 1 hard drive hda with partitions hda1 and hda2. I initially had this drive installed in another computer with Linux on it awhile ago however I want to play with some other Linux flavors. Which drive is HDA1. That seems to me to be the the first partition off of the primary ide controller...
or is it? Can anyone help me?
