Just to add some more information if it was not available already. My lone remaining PATA drive died a few weeks back, and I did a clean install of Feisty (7.04) today as follows:

Cold boot, press F8 to select boot menu popup (since default boot order is hard drive first).
Boot off the installation CD
Install Ubuntu

I experienced no issues - So I suspect the comments by Ralph that it is the PATA/SATA mix is correct.

However, my hardware has changed since I originally reported this bug:

* ASUS P5W DH Deluxe Motherboard (ICH7R)
* Core 2 Duo, etc
