[owl-users] installing from CDROM on the third (!) IDE channel

I've got a very uncommon machine here at Tashkent which has 2
SATA ports and one port which seems to be generic IDE. In BIOS
setup, that one is referred as Third IDE. Unfortunately enough,
CDROM drive is attached to that drive.

How should I start the Owl CD? It requires to select the
installing CD drive from {pri_m, pri_sl, sec_m, sec_sl, scsi}.
I've tried something like root=/dev/hde, but got no success.
