Hey thanks! My new laptop arrived today and fc4 complained about no hard disks. But with your options, it works. Cool! Installing fc4 now while fc5 comes in via bittorrent, hope to install that tonight.

Cheers, Paul.

Simular problems. FC5 (64 bit) installation program cant find my 2 SATA disks, where I have FC4 (64 bit) installed by the way. No problem installing FC4. The IDE drive is found.
ASUS K8N4-E Delux
Samsung spinpoint 200GB (2 pieces)
AMD 64 sempron 3000+

Had same problem with same hardware (K8N4-E)

This is what helped me along: at the startup of the installation cd, boot the linux kernel with the option

"pci=nommconf"
