Similar problem on LT, but I thought was due to install of BL to 1st sector of boot partition, instead of the MBR! I had same LVM VolumeGroups, but I deleted them & created what I wanted. If I understand it right, your boot is on 1st part of the 2ndHDD/Sata, but root (FC5 O/S) is actually on 1st part of Extended on sata. Can you access all Linux part fm M$ Home or when FC5 up the NTFS parts OK fm fc5?

I do not know of any special drivers required to mount SATA as WinXP (F6) does on start of install. Do you have any BIOS virus warning enabled or your System BIOS cached?
