The JM363 works with Fedora if you ignore the advice being given below
and use the normal fix for unknown PATA or early SATA controllers and boot
with

all_generic_ide

This will detect the chip and it will appear as an IDE controller pair, one
with the PATA the other with the two SATA channels faked as master/slave.

With FC6Pre and later rawhide kernels the AHCI driver will drive the
SATA ports at full performance and the PATA port will be assigned to the
IDE layer.

2.6.18 is the minimal kernel for automatic Jmicron support. The all
generic fix will work with Red Hat products back to the stone age but
not some other vendors (its to do with whether they built some IDE
modules or not and how).
