Fedora 16 install problem in Lifebook P1120
 
Hello all,
I'm having trouble installing Fedora 16 in a Lifebook P1120.
I'm using PXE remote install, all goes fine until the install image starts running, it doesn't find the hard disk and then I have a kernel panic.
Anyone has a solution for this?
Or at least a lspci of the P1120 hardware so that I can look for IDE drivers?
Thanks in advance
Pedro

I've managed to install SliTaz linux distro using PXE and all works ok.
So I guess something is missing in the Fedora 16 install image for the IDE controller of my P1120.
Well, in fact what I installed was a Live image of SliTaz via PXE. I didn't even know that would be possible. And it works fine. At the same time I could see that in fact I'm having some hard disk problems. So maybe Fedora is not installing because my hard disk is failing. I'll check it out and I'll post some more info here...
