At the release of FC3 I attempted to install it on my dual-boot PC with two DiamondMax 9000 SATA drives. I got what seems to be a very common error:
loading sata_sil... disabling IRQ #11 (or very similar)
It seems to have been a common problem mentioned many times, for example:
I don't think I'm comfortable enough in building kernels etc, and like the example above, don't have a PATA drive to avoid the issue completely. So I stuck with FC2 (which installs flawlessly) in the hope that in FC4 the issue would be resolved.
Unfortunately have just tried to install FC4 this is still a problem.
Can anyone out there suggest a solution? Or am I going to be stuck at FC2 forever????

1 X Maxtor 6 Y080 M0 DiamondMax Plus 9 (80GB) with FC2

Would appreciate any pointers at all that people could offer!
