Problem description:
FC4 fails to install to a JS20 ppc machine (8842-21X).  Fails to find the IDE
disks.  Looking at the kernel source RPM and default configuration file thats
used CONFIG_BLK_DEV_AMD74XX is not set.  This appears to be the IDE driver that
is used on the JS20 IDE driver.

If this is a customer issue, please indicate the impact to the customer:
Direct impact to the Cell Broadband Engine compiler development for external

If this is not an installation problem,
       Describe any custom patches installed.

       Provide output from "uname -a", if possible:

Hardware Environment
    Machine type (p650, x235, SF2, etc.): 8842-21X
    Cpu type (Power4, Power5, IA-64, etc.): ppc64
    Describe any special hardware you think might be relevant to this problem:

Please provide contact information if the submitter is not the primary contact.

Please provide access information for the machine if it is available.

Is this reproducible?
    If so, how long does it (did it) take to reproduce it?
    Describe the steps:  Boot from FC4 media.  Cannot find a disk to install to.

    If not, describe how the bug was encountered:

Is the system (not just the application) hung?
    If so, describe how you determined this:

Did the system produce an OOPS message on the console?
    If so, copy it here:  

Is the system sitting in a debugger right now?
    If so, how long may it stay there?
