Currently, I have 2 Disks attached to my system:

The first disk is a normal ide disk, detected as
/dev/hda during the installation process of FC1. The
OS is installed onto one of the partitions on this
disk /dev/hda2.

The Second disk is a SATA disk. Detected as /dev/sda.
No FC1 elements were installed onto this disk, i
intend to make it a storage for audio data.

My linux skills are abit rusty, didn't touch this OS
for quite a while. As for capturing the kernel boot
time messages any advice? so that i can send the
bootup messages up to the point where it hangs and I
have to push reset button.

All i can tell you now is that i do notice that the
boot process hangs right after a line that says:

hde: attached ide-disk driver

I don't suppose I have a hde on my system.

Thanks a lot,
