    I think at the time of install you selected "Advance mode" . That's why you need to choice your self.
    Don't select "Advance mode" .

    I used Mandrake 10.0 with Samsang SATA HDD.

    try scsi interface, for some reason, linux recognizes sata disks using the scsi driver.
    Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.
