    Cloned linux guest was originally with IDE drives

      I had an emergency and tried to clone a server into vmware ESX 3.0.2.  I had to use the bootable clone cd and after complete I get a kernel panic because the drivers on the kernel and all the configs are set for IDE hardware (its also a mirrored set).  Changing this would be a colossal headache as the build is very ancient and not up to date.  Is there anyway to use virtual IDE controllers on an ESX guest?
