Installation Asus A7v333

Description of problem:
Hardware: Asus A7v333 with Promise's PDC20276 ATA RAID controller onboard
When installing, anaconda sees my 2 HDs as a RAID controller despite the fact
that RAID is turned off (it'll come up as /dev/mapper/pdc_gghbhhdd), and the
two HDs shows up properly as IDE 1 and IDE 2.
Installation generally goes fine, but after install, start up will stop just
after the BIOS screen, just a blinking cursor.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot to the installation CD
2. Install Fedora Core 6
Boot into the second stage of install
The problem happens on FC5 and FC6. FC4 will see the two drives just fine, and
it installs fine.
This means you turned the RAID BIOS off, but didn't actually remove the raid
volumes first. Either do that, or boot the installer with 'nodmraid' on the
