Description of problem:
I am using Asus A7S333 mainboard and Athlon 1700+ CPU with
512M RAM. My harddisk is 120M seagate harddisk.
The mainboard is SiS chipset based.
The boot message shows it can recognize the harddisk but when it comes to
partition the harddisk, it cannot recognize the harddisk.
i.e. I don't have harddisk to partition in partition screen.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
No special setup, just follow the installer, you will
produce the bug.
Arjan are there any known kernel issues with this IDE chipset?
do you know which SIS chipset?
We are still trying to get documentation out of SiS. Until that happens we
cannot fix any SiS stuff and possibly for the next RH we may have to just give
up on any SiS products.
Michael K Johnson is supposed to be trying to resolve things with SiS.
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
