Exclamation Help! SATA problems! Urgent!

I really need some help here. Just got my new computer pats in, and big problem. Everything is assembled DFI LanParty NFII B and Athlon Mobile XP 2500+ @ 2.4 gHz, 1gig Mushkin pc3200 dc ram, hitachi 160 gig SATA hd. I boot and have my system install cd in (Fedora Core 2) and it gives me a kernel panic as it is trying to start up the boot cd. Tried at least 4 other distros, and none boot right. I have never used SATA before and really need help! Is there something I'm missing? I've tried using the RAID utility and the 'low level format' option about 3 times but still no dice. Something's wrong, but i dont know what! Help, please!

Sounds like what I experienced when the kernel used as the basis for my install boot CD was not recent enough to support my SATA hardware. A RH Enterprise clone distribution called WhiteBox ( solved this for me.
