SATA CD Drive not detected

I am attempting to run the new Kororaa live-cd on my desktop. I have one machine with an ATA hard drive that boots fine, Xgl and Compiz are wonderful by the way. But when trying to boot the cd with my PX-716A SATA disc drive, the cd drive is booted from but then the distro loader cannot find it in /dev. I had two hard drives plugged in to SATA 1 and SATA 2, and the drive was on SATA 4. I thought maybe the distro only had nodes for 2 SATA devices, so I switched the optical to SATA 2. Now, though, only /dev/sda appears.... What is wrong?
