FC6 Install Not Recognizing SATA Drive

Trying to install FC6. When anaconda installer gets to partition screen, there is no drive to select! System contains a single 160 GB SATA drive, IDE DVD-ROM & IDE DVD-RW drives. Dual boots with XP (which runs fine).

Used to have FC4 installed and don't remember having this problem during FC4 installation.

Could this have anything to do with some BIOS setting? It appears that the SATA ports are "configured" to be "seen" as IDE ports???

If I change this setting, will it screw-up Windows XP?
