Installing Fedora Core 3 test3 on a SATA drive


I have downloaded the x86_64 iso of Fedora Core 3 test 3, and I'm trying to install that on a MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum mobo. Specs in short:
  • nForce3 chipset
  • nVidia RAID chip (have no idea what exactly)
  • SATA Drive (Maxtor 200GB SATA)

for more detailed specs :

Now when I boot from CD, i get the error that he doesn't find any hd's. So my question is, how do I get the installer to see my drive ? I know this can't be hard, it'll probably be just one kernel parameter I'll have to pass along when i boot from CD, but I just don't have a clue which one ...

I heard somewhere that there was SATA support in the SCSI module for the kernel, so I'm figuring I have to pass some kernel paramater before starting the install procedure so that he knows to search for SCSI/SATA drives ?

Thanks in advance,
