I'm not much help here any more, but here's my suggestions for what they're 

1. Plextor hardware lists:
http://www.plextor.com/english/support/PX-716SA motherboard compatability 

[Is it just me or does Windoze users look really stupid when they post URL's 
with spaces in them? :-(]

2. Try the latest Knoppix CD.

3. If you think Fedora will work, try it or ask on one of their lists.

If you can get your setup to work with another version of Linux, we'll be that 
much closer to figuring out what's wrong.

BTW, I still lean heavily to the hardware side of thing. Try a more compatible 
SATA controller.
