Question Installing to IDE3, IDE5

I have an ABIT IS7-E with the ICH5 controller. I can install Red Hat 9.0 without difficulty if I configure the BIOS to put the SATA controllers as IDE1 or IDE2 (BIOS numbering not Linux). If I configure the BIOS to use the standard IDE controllers for IDE1 and IDE2 and the SATA controllers as IDE3 and IDE4, the installer
can't see the hard drives. Since I need the standard IDE controllers for other things I'm in a bit of a fix. Does anyone
have a solution for this?

Thanks in advance - gjh

I think this thread relates to your problem:

You might read Finegan's reply. Not having this hardware myself, I know nothing about it.
At least, we will bump it back up.
