I haven't tried installing on a system without having at least 1 /boot
partition and have pretty much ignored SATA, especially on those
mini-RAID controllers...the installed i386 and x86_64 kernels have
identical filenames so trying to install into a single /boot is
problematic.  Perhaps the bad mojo is coming from the combination of
x86_64, no /boot, SATA and the sata_sil driver.  IIRC, the last FC2T3
kernel was the same a the original FC2 kernel so that can't be the
problem...perhaps sata_sil does differ though.
