    Hi Gurus,

    I just purchased a DELL VOSTRO 200 PC with the following specs:
    Intel(R) Core(TM)Duo CPU
    E4400@2.00GHz
    1.99GHz,0.99GB of RAM
    2GB Memory,80GB SATA HD,INTEL 945G Chipset.It has
    IDE Controller Intel(R) ICH9 2 port Serial ATA Storage Controller 2 - 2926
    IDE Controller Intel(R) ICH9 4 port Serial ATA Storage Controller 1 - 2920
    DISK DRIVE : WDC WD800JD-75MSA3

    My problem is that i am unable to install FEDORA CORE 5 which is what i need because i get an error in the very pre installation stages that ''No driver found-unable to find any devices of the type needed for this inatallation type.Would youlike to manually select your driver or use a driver disk?"

    Anyway to go around this?

    Will appreciate your contribution.

    Ideally if your hdd is attached to SATA 0 you should not have any problems as the Fedora disc detects all SATA peripherals.
