Unhappy No HDD seen during FC2 install

Trying to install XP/Linux (FC2) as duel boot for couple days now. XP installs okay, but no matter how I partition (or not partition) the remainder of the drive, linux does not recognize the hard drive to even begin w/ partitioning. Installing on a Sony Vaio VGN-S460P. Any suggestions?

At a guess, FC2 doesn't support the combination of IDE controller and hard disk that you're trying to install. I would recommend trying to install a newer distribution like FC4, as this has much better hardware support.

If this is for a desktop machine, then you might also want to consider a less server-oriented distribution like Mandriva.
