Help needed to install FC3

I am trying to install FC3 on my brand new Dell Dimension 5150 with SATA drives. During installation FC3 complains that it cannot see any hard drives. I have read numerous posts, but didn't get clear picture.It seems like the drivers (ata_piix) has some kind problems. I have tried to find updated version of this or similar driver and the way to update it during installation process
I would appreciate if somebody could help


Here is my system info:

CPU:Pentium P4 3.2GHz,
MB: Intel
HDD: 80GB Seagate Barracuda ST380817AS
SATA Ctrlr: Intel 82801GB

Did you try to press F2 for boot options, instead of just hitting enter to install using default kernel?

Boot using the sata.i boot image.

Have fun.
