So in order to see your hard drive, you need to load ata_piix, but in
order to see your CD, you cannot load it, correct? Nice catch 22, and
something that would have to be fixed in the kernel, not in the order
the installer loads modules, I guess.

Have you tried to boot with "linux" to use the 2.4 kernel? I don't know
if it will see your sata drive, but it's worth a try.

If you really want to get this system installed, your best option will
probably be using some other install media. You could try to netboot it,
or do a install from floppies and the network. Or you could use this
small CD image, which only uses the CD for booting and the network for
the rest of the install, so it does not matter if the installer does not
see your CD drive:


Ater you manage an install, you could try upgrading to the 2.6.10 kernel
or something and see if that helps with the CD drive issue. Please keep
us informed of your progress.
