Question Linux can't find Western Digital Hard Drives (SATA)

I've tried to install Fedora Core 2 and Suse 9.1 Personal. But every time during the hardware detection he said he couldn't find a Harddisk???
I have a:

ASUS P4R800-V Deluxe motherboard
Intel Pentium 4 3.0Ghz (Prescott) processor
2 x Western Digital 160 JD (SATA 160GB) harddisks

My motherboard has a SIS raid-sata controller. But when I look at Suse to the running drivers, he already started a driver for that controller! But still he can't find the HDS.

I've already tried to install a new BIOS version, but this didn't solve the problem.

Could sombody please help me with this problem??
