(SATA SI3114) Silicon Image SATA Driver Not Included in fedora installer

Description of problem:
On boot when choosing a extra driver for SCSI and other devices not
detected on boot it does not have Silicon Image drivers listed at all.
They're in the vanilla kernel off kernel.org.
Silicon Image is the broadcom of SATA and SATA Raid chipsets on
consumer motherboards and are one of the cheaper addon cards out
there. As more users wish to adopt SATA hard drives and other
components this will cause problems.
These need to be included at release.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
2.6.5 Stock with Test 3
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot check in installer.
Actual Results: You cannot continue with installation. Only work
around would be to compile driver disk and this is unacceptable to
any standard user.
Expected Results: User would have been able to continue with

Is the SiL 3114 supposed to work with FC2 ? My disks are detected,
still I get a lot of lost interrupts on my SATA disks and the
installation doesn't really proceed properly because of that.
Ok, forget that last remark. The Abit KV8-MAX3 has 6 SATA connections,
of which the first 2 are VIA RAID and the next 4 are the SiL 3114.
Both BIOSes aren't very clear about this, nor is the documentation.
FC2 works with the SiL 3114, but not with the VIA RAID Chipset.
What puzzles me, though, is that although I have both disks configured
as RAID1 and the BIOS clearly has it configured as 1 logical disk,
Linux still sees both disks as sda/sdb.
well The driver actually works in Core 2 but I still want the raid
version to be in here. In other words, it sees my SATA single drives
but it doesnt see my RAID'ed drives.
Has there been any progress getting FC2 to recognize the single RAID
drive instead of each individual drive?
Any progress on this one?
