Can you give me a bit more detail about this error? First of all, what
type of hardware do you have. IDE / SCSI / SATA? More than one drive?
Also try this:
Download the latest snapshot:
Then boot to the GUI installer, and right click on the desktop to bring
up xterm. Next run this command:
Does it echo out any drive or drives found?
