FC3 is an old release, they're up to 10 now. Try Fedora 10, or any other newer distro.

Fedore Core 3 is a very bad idea, their have been no updates to that, including security for like 3 years now? and why would your project work rely on a single kernal?

SATA disks ?. If you absolutely *have* to use that, install an IDE disk, and try the install again.

You might look at Centos 4.X. Centos is RHEL with the logos removed. It is free to download and update (unlike RHEL). I cannot remember for sure but I think it is running on a 2.6.9 kernel (Centos 5.X runs on a 2.6.18 kernel). Centos 4.X still has several years of support.
