No, it makes the kernel to detect the unsupported PATA
controller. Is the SATA controller set to AHCI mode in BIOS?

That brings up a question...what *should* it be?  It was set in the
BIOS to IDE.  As I understand it, to get the most speed/features out
of these drives, it should be set to AHCI, correct?

Also, I've already done a couple OS installs on these drives, so it
would appear changing the setting to AHCI will cause me to reinstall
those OS's.

Hey Professor (as Ace would say)...

I don't know about having to reinstall the other OS's or not however you do want the controller set to AHCI for FC6. Also in order to get the CDrom drive working I had to add the all-generic-ide. I was unable to install FC6 when I set my drives to anything other than AHCI.
