Mint 8 Helena does not see my hard drives


Hi All,

Trying to install Helena. The install moves along fine but when the partitioner begins, it remains blank- does not see any of my hard drives. Took out a Gloria disk and booted. Gloria installer's partitioner sees my hard disks and partitions with no problem. Fdisk also shows my two drives and partitions:

aquamarine ~ # fdisk -l

Not sure what to do from here. Thoughts?

Thanks in advance,
