This is curious.  It sounds like the system is picking up another IDE 
controller in your system - are you using an offboard controller? (IE a 
PCI card like a Promise card or some such)  If so then in all likelihood 
there is a controller built-in to your mainboard which the system is 
seeing as /dev/hda/b/c/d.

If not, then can you do an lspci and post the results?
