AMD athlon 900 Mhz processor
Abit motherboard with VIA chipset (support SATA)
kingston 256Mb DDR 266 ram
Quantum fireball 10Gb HD (IDE)
Seagate 80Gb HD (SATA)
actually i want to install redhat linux 9 on the SATA HD, then i find tat the stupid linux kernel dun regconise my SATA HD (it said no hard disk was found)...i know kernel 2.6 is support SATA feature but i dun know how to compile the kernel without any OS on the hard disk.
so, i change my mind and try to install the linux on IDE hard disk, it has come out a warming like this below before start installing.
"the partition table on /dev/hda is inconsistent, linux detected BIOS geometry incorrectly. it is safe to ignore, but ignoring may cause problem with some boot loaders & may cause problems with FAT file system. using LBA is recommended."
in the half way of installing linux, it come out an eeror message like this
"there was an error installing openoffice.org-il8n-1.1.0-2. this can indocate media failure, lack of disk space, or hardware problems. Please verify ur media and try ur install again."
