Description of problem:
Hardware used is a Plextor PX716SA SATA DVD+RW drive. Installed in a Dell PowerEdge 400SC (Intel ICH5 SATA/IDE controller).
When booting from CD or DVD install media, installer requests the "appropriate driver". Selecting any driver in the list -- no driver in the list allows you to continue.
Attempted with RHEL4 Disc 1 and Fedora Core 3 DVD.
RHEL4/FC3 does not include SATA CD/DVD driver!
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from RHEL4 or FC3 media in SATA CD/DVD drive
2. Watch installer prompt you for the correct driver to proceed
Actual Results: Can't find driver to continue the installation from media in SATA CD/DVD drive.
Expected Results: Anaconda should proceed with installation, continuing to read from the install media.
We don't have kernel support for SATA ATAPI.

This is also occurring for me while attempting a Fedora Core 4 dvd-based install
on an Athlon64 box + using the same SATA DVD drive.
also a problem for me on various current machines.
Current work around is install via PXE boot- this is obviously not an option for
committed in stream U4 build 34.27. A test kernel with this patch is available
