Description of problem:
Attempting to install FedoraCore3 Test1 from SATA CD-ROM on an Intel
865 (ICH5) motherboard with a SATA hard drive and SATA CD-ROM (set to
Legacy mode in BIOS) causes Anaconda to report that it can't install
from media. After Anaconda launches and the language and keyboard
are chosen, some garbage characters are written to the screen and a
dialogue box appears stating that it can't find media to install from
and asks to select a media source [and eventually] a third-party
driver. Selecting CD-ROM or Hard Drive do not work, even when
selecting piix_ata driver.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attempt to install FC3T1 from a SATA CD-ROM
Actual Results: Gets stuck at dialogue box stating that the
installer can't find media to install from.
Expected Results: Installs from CDs.
