Does the BIOS have an option to make the SATA drive appear as an
ordinary IDE PATA drive? If so, set that and then do the installation.
You may find that the installer Kernel can't use the SATA, but the
installed kernel can.

I did this about 9 months ago to install Etch on someones laptop with SATA.

Hope this helps!
