FC1 & S-ATA Raid

Hello people,

I just bought a Tyan Tomcat i7210,
which has an on-board S-ATA RAID controller.
( Silicon Image Sil3114 )

I have downloaded the RAID Drivers for linux from the TYAN website and put them on floppy.

Now, I boot my Server, go into the bios of the RAID controller ( The Silicon Image Sil3114 ) by pressing F4, and I create a RAID 1 array of my 2 Maxtor 160GB S-ATA Disks. That was done, so i exit the BIOS. Now, my machine starts booting from the CD-ROM (Just like i want)

It starts the Fedora installer, and it says the following thing:
No hard drives have been found. You probably need to manually choose the device drivers for the installation to succeed. Would you like to select drivers now?
I chose YES,

It says:
No device drivers have been loaded for your system. Would you like to load any way?
I say: Add Device. (If i do done, i can't get past the formatting of the disks for fedora with disk dru´d)

Now, a list with devices shows up, 3Com etc. I press F2 to load my driver from the floppy i made.

Reading driver disk...
Now, the Silicon image is in the list of devices, I select it.

After its loaded, it says:
No device drivers have been loaded for your system. Would you like to load any way?
So, i repeat the sequence a few times, with no effect.

Finally, when it shows up again, i press the done button.

It starts the anaconda.

I select language, keyboard, mouse,..

Then i select manually partitioning with Disk Druid.

An error has occurred, no valid devices were located on which to create new file systems. Please check your hardware for the cause of the problem.

Now, I'm completely desperate. Shall I try the Hance Rapids raid controller?

Have you got other ideas?

Thx in advance
