linux doesn't recognize sata drive on msi 7093 + amd64 3200
i've got a new computer with the msi 7093 board with a seagate 80 gb sata drive. all the linux installers i've tried including fedora core 3, ubuntu 4.1 and suse 9.1 personal don't recognize the hard drive.
i tried loading the sata drivers from sil and promise but to no avail.
i can run the live ubuntu cd which does manage to read some of the hardware but it also doesn't recognize the drive.
is the version of linux i attempted too dated or am i missing something?
don't know much on the raid 0/1 front and looking at some of the post it seems to be the problem. and plus most have it working.
i got the sil 3114 driver from the silicon image site (after a search pointed that i would need it) but don't know what to do with it - tried the scripts on install but they don't work.
