Debian Install Problems

I just got a new PC and I want to install Debian 3 on it.  I am pretty much a newb when it comes to installs but I have another machine on which I installed Debian and got it to work pretty much how I want.

Before I go any further, here is my hardware setup:

MSI 865PE Neo2 Motherboard
Intel P4 3.2GHz Processor
2 Seagate 80GB SATA drives
NVidia GeForce FX 5900

So, the problem is as follows.  I turn on the computer and get the lovely hardware splash screens.  Then, the RAID BIOS tells me it has found my two drives and that they are bootable.  Then my machine proceeds to boot off my Debian CDROM, but when I enter the install process Debian is unable to detect my drives.

Does anyone know what I should do?  Does Debian not have adequate SATA support?  I am pretty much in the dark.

Try doing a net install of Debian Sarge.  While in the final stages of being declared stable, you may still have issues with the SATA drives.  There installer for this release on the Debian site here: http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer/ and the documentation is here: http://d-i.alioth.debian.org/manual/.  I installed this way and had it up and running in two and a half hours.  The SATA issue may be dealt with in the docs but they were not available when I did my install.

Current Distributions: Debian Sarge, Debian-Knoppix (3.7), Fedora Core 3, Mandrake 10.1 OE, PCLinuxOS, Suse 9.1 Pro, Whitebox Enterprise Linux, W$ XP, 98SE
