Fedora2 confused about SATA drives.



Ive been making SLOW progress on getting Fedora2 up on a
friends box with 4GB of memory and 2 SATA drives.

I still have no explanation as to why Fedora (and memtest86,
and everything else I have tried) only sees 2.792GB of memory
when loaded on this Intel D875PBZ motherboard and a 3.2GHz
Processor and 4x 1GB of memory.

---

After installing Fedora2 and trying to boot, you only get as
far as
	"GRUB Loading stage2.."
tho there was no such problem with Fedora2test3 (sigh)
I can get Fedora up using GRUB on a floppy, but dont seem
to be able to solve the above problem.  Id blame it on SATA
if it wasnt that it 'worked before with FC2t3'.

Fedora is confused by SATA drives.
On the GRUB line (and grub.conf) you have to identify them as /dev/hda1
But in the /etc/fstab, and on mount commands as /dev/sda1...
Grump.

For reference, it intstalls on my older machine just fine.
So much for the Bleading edge.
Guess Ill play more in the morning.

Any comments (or help!) with any of the above would be appreciated.
