[PLUG] IDE drive preventing grub from loading

I gave up on this problem a few months ago and decided to give it a
try again today.

I have a computer with a motherboard without IDE slots.  I had a very
old PCI-IDE card that worked for a while, but it stopped.  I replaced
it.  and ever since, my system won't boot with the IDE drives plugged
in.  The PCI card's BIOS seems to recognize them OK, but I just get a
blinking cursor after POST when they are plugged in.  If I unplug
them, everything is fine.

I am thinking the boot process is looking for grub there and can't find it.
