Question Disk druid of Fedora not showing all partitions of HDD

Disk druid of red hat Linux not showing all partitions of hard disk. I have 2 hard disk 1 SATA HDD of 80gb with 3 partition and another ATA HDD of 40gb with 4 partition. Primary partition is in SATA part. Disk druid showing C (primary partition) and 4 partitions (all from ATA HDD). In primary partition(c drive) and 1 extended (g drive which is in ATA HDD) WinXP is installed.
When I am installing Fedora in ATA HDD, boot screen (grub) is not coming. But I am unable to install in SATA HDD ass those partitions are not showing. How I'll solve this

I have the same problem on my server with SATA drives. FC7 installer just doesn't recognize them. Same for any drives hooked up to an additional EIDE controller. They are all there AFTER installation on a regular IDE drive and then I have to go through hoops and loops to manually set them up.....

Kubuntu and openSuSE detect them just fine.
That's why my server is now running Kubuntu (alternate installation disk).....
