THE FOLLOWING POST WAS BY shrikant.odugoudar
Here is how its done.
1) Go to your BIOS and change Advanced->Drive Configuration->AHCI(will be IDE initially)
2) Insert the Fedora(Debian) cd/dvd into your drive.
3) Start installation by typing 'linux a),b) & c)'
4) Once the installation is completed, c) will be added automatically to the kernel parameter, you just add a) to the kernel by modifying /boot/grub/grub.conf. DON'T ADD b)
I've successfully tried and tested this using FC6 on my motherboard. FYI my specs in my sig.
Hope this helps
