    F11 installation drivers for ASUS P5L-VM 1394

    I would like to install Fedora 11 on an ASUS P5L-VM 1394 motherboard with a 3 GHz Pentium 4 CPU.
    This is an LGA775 socket mobo with a Intel 945G chipset.

    Two SATA hard drives are plugged into SATA ports. An IDE DVD drive is plugged into the IDE/ATA port.

    Using the 32 bit Fedora 11 installation disk, I have seen two cases:

    1) No hard drive recognized. When i get to the disk configuration screen, there are no options to choose from.

    2) By monkeying around with the BIOS settings or switching the SATA ports the disks are connected to, I can get an alternative mode in which no drivers are found for the DVD drive either.

    Currently, a version of Ubuntu is installed.

    Help.

    UPDATE: The board was purchased in a P3-PH4C barebones, which for unknown reasons requires a different BIOS issue than the regular P5L-VM 1394. Updating to the most recent BIOS does not resolve the problem.

    One the installation procedure fails to recognize the hard drives, going into a shell and examining the boot up log shows that the kernel recognized both hard drives. So it's down to why the installation procedure is not recognizing them.

    Finally managed to get F11 installed. Had to use a different hard drive, anaconda was unhappy with the original hard drive for reasons I still do not understand.
