How do you see more than 2 IDE ports?

I am running Mandrake 6.5 and have a BP6 motherboard with two standard IDE ports and two UDMA66 IDE ports.  Durning installation I can only see the first two ports making it impossible for me to utilize my new fast harddrive to its fullest.  How do I see the second set of IDE ports?

What about a Win98 10 GB IDE drive (full) and an empty 4GB IDE (for Linux-Mandrake 6.0)?  Why doesn't Disk Druid see the second drive during installation?
