The jmicron driver has been included in the latest 2.6.18 kernel that is 
used in current _daily built_ installer images [1]. It would be great if 
you could test the new installer to see if your system installs now.

You don't need to overwrite your existing installation. Just run the 
installation to the start of partitioning. Please choose the "manual" 
partitioning method and check that your SATA drives are still recognized 
too and then abort the installation.
