Thumbs up Fedora 10 installation


Hi All,
I am trying to install Fedora 10 on my Dell Latitude D610 laptop, but the fedora shows as SDA and not HDA though my hard disk is ide and not squzzy or sata, but when I install Red Hat 9 it shows as HDA,why it would be happening.

And also in fedora installation when I am at partitioning screen and I jump to professional parttioning with CTRL+ALT+F2 and create partions and give w to write changes to hard drive and goes back to disk druid with CTRL+ALT+F6 there I cant see the partitions which I made, only default partitions are shown.

Can anyone please guide me on this.

Thanks

fedora uses the sda for both
just use the gui partitioning editor ,It will do EVERYTHING that you need .
