From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)

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):

How reproducible:

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?
Comment 2 Arjan van de Ven 2003-04-07 14:28:20 EDT
do you know which SIS chipset?
Comment 3 Alan Cox 2003-04-07 14:32:24 EDT
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
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
