Question y doesnt MDK find mt hard drives??help

i have a 4 cd version of mandriva LTD edition 2005,When installing it first asks me to choose a mouse and i av tried every1 and none ov them work.???

so i decided to install anyway and configure mouse later, but then on the next step i get a msg saying installing drivers, it stays on this 4 ages then an error msg comes up, this is it:

insmod'ing module sata_nv failed at /usr/bin/perl-install/ line 324

it then asks me for other devices but never works, all i get is: No valid devices were found to create new file systems.

I have 2 sata hard drives and have set up them up as JBOD on both ov the raid controllers i have on my motherboard, and have also tried it without a RAID setup.
why cnt it find my hard drives??? or is it that it does not have the correct drivers to work?
Thank You
