    not detecting hard drives...


    i just tried to install debian sarge on my comp, and when i got to the part to partition my drive, it said that my hard drives can't be detected. what's wrong? i have 2 80gb sata drives. i'm already dual-booting windows and ubuntu, but i made a 15gb partition on one of the drives for debian.

    thanks

    My guess is that it doesn't have SATA support..

    when you get the first boot screen, where you would normally push enter to boot, type linux26 to use the 2.6 kernel
