Let me get this straight: you've installed CentOS 5.5? Have you checked
/boot/grub/device.map, so that it looks something like
#################
# this device map was generated by anaconda
(hd0) /dev/sda
#################
Do you have a /boot/grub/grub.conf?

Hmmm... I can't remember if I mention this a day or two ago, but have you
checked the BIOS for a funky setting - maybe under "advanced" or
"integrated peripherals", to see if it's got a setting for... oh, was it
SATA mode that I had the problem with? See if there's such a thing, and if
so, change it to RAID instead of IDE.
