I finally got grub to work properly. I installed Redhat again just to see what the grub.conf looked like, and sure enough /dev/sda1 is seen as (hd0,0) even though there is an ide hard drive installed. What was most confusing to me was the output from grub after running grub-install. For anyone with a similar problem, I'd definitely reccomend trying (hd0,0) in grub.conf. I believe the real problem is that the IDE hard drive is a slave on the secondary channel which would put the SATA drive as the first drive grub sees?
