Ahh, possible clue...
Are hda and hdb on the same IDE controller (and possibly even the same cable)?
I have seen this kind of problem with IDE RAID where one drive is locking up
the IDE bus or the controller is faulty....
Try with a new IDE cable, and then with only one drive connected (may require
some faffing about to get what was the slave drive to boot as the master).
Just some thoughts.
