    Problem installing Mandrake 9.1


    When I get to the screen where I select which disk and which partition to install Mandrake into; I can't seem to select any other disks besides hda. There are no tabs for my other hard drives. I selected Custom Partitioning.

    do your other harddrives work, do you have a way to verify?

    Well, Windows XP and Knoppix Linux can see and use them. Also, the bios can detect them too.
