hello all. although i have years of experience working with MS, i am very very new to Linux. so, please be gentle
i have a little bit of hands-on with Fedora 2, but that was with a couple older Dell GX260/GX270 machines, and Fedora 2 had native drivers for them. easy peasy.
at this point i am setting up a Fedora 2 at home, and am having problems locating SATA drivers for an Asus m3a-h/hdmi (AMD 780G, SB700 chipset). Fedora installer warns there are no hard drives detected. for all i know there will be more stops in the install process, but this is the first hurdle for me.
ive done some googling, but am having a hard time finding something that is clearly what i need driver-wise. i am kind of afraid to take risks due to my lack of experience, unlike with MS OSs, which ive lost all intimidation from.
any help, or a point in the right direction would be most helpful.
thank you in advance!
