no, it's because of the sata raid controller. linux has had support for sata drives and controllers for several years, but support for sata raid is relatively weak.

is there some reason you don't want to use fc6 instead of fc4? it might have better hardware support.

Try this in rescue mode

grub> root (hd0,0)
grub> setup (hd0)
grub> root (hd1,0)
grub> setup (hd1)
grub> quit

...except you didn't have the same problem. unless your sata raid controller was also unsupported by linux?

if you can't see the drives in the installer, how do you expect to see them under rescue mode, and how do you expect to do the install in rescue mode?
