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):

How reproducible:

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.
