installing 24.2 on eeepc 901, won't let me choose the 2nd HD to install on

I'm trying to install 32-bit 24.2 on my old Asus eeepc 901. This model has two SSDs built in, sda is 4 gigs, sdb is 16 gigs. I want to install on sdb, but I can't figure out how to do that. no matter what I do, 4mlinux installer only lists sda[12] as suitable places to install.

I've tried many things, including entering the BIOS and setting sda as disabled. even so, the 4mlinux installer offers only sda partitions as possible targets.

Anybody know how to beat this into submission?

thanks in advance!

Unfortunately, 4MLinux can only be installed to the first HDD (/dev/sda).
