    ECS Motherboard Problems - help


    hello all,
    i'm new to linux, so pardon my noobness. . . i posted earlier in the RedHat/Fedora forum about my install issues.

    linuxforums.org/forum/red-hat-fedora-linux/179464-fedora-14-install-problem-maybe.html

    i have reason to believe my problems may be hardware related. in particular about my motherboard. it is an ECS NFORCE3-A with the newest version of the firmware (F). after install of F14, F15, or Ubuntu i get "grub>_" and it doesn't matter if its an IDE drive or SATA drive that i install to. . .

    in a nutshell, the command "root (hd0,0)" returns invalid drive, but if i boot from the disc in rescue mode it has no problem. . .

    i don't know what to do. could someone point me in the right direction.

    thanks in advance,
    - nick

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.
