[PlanetCCRMA] No Volume Groups Found - Kernel Panic - SATA

When originally installing Fedora Core 3, I had to switch Compatibility Mode 
on in my BIOS for my SATA drive. After installing the Planet CCRMA Fedora 3 
Kernel, it would not boot. It gave a few "No Volume Groups Found" errors and 
ended with a "Kernel Panic".

Apparently the SATA support has been upgraded in the new Kernel, so the 
solution was to simply disable compatibility mode in the BIOS to boot the 
new kernel.

I thought I would leave this tip for anyone else who may have the same 
problem. It's a very simple solution, but took me days of hunting through 
forums to find!

Hope someone out there finds this useful.
