SubjectWierd IDE configuration

I've got machine which has two identical IBM 16 GB disks. Funny thing
is that linux seems to think that their geometry is different.
Here is output from boot messages:

hda: IBM-DTTA-351010, 9671MB w/466kB Cache, CHS=1232/255/63, UDMA
hdb: IBM-DTTA-351680, 16124MB w/462kB Cache, CHS=2055/255/63, UDMA
hdc: IBM-DTTA-351680, 16124MB w/462kB Cache, CHS=32760/16/63, UDMA

Both disks have identical settings in BIOS. Motherboard is Abit BX6 v2.0
which is BX-based. This doesn't seem to cause any trouble but does anyone
have idea why this happens?. BTW kernel is 2.2.6.
