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.


Ah, OK.  Sadly, it does appear that changing the BIOS setting for the
drives to AHCI from IDE will keep the other OS's from booting (since
they were initially installed with different drivers and now are no
longer detected :-( )

I'm also curious if I'm getting the most out of the drives by having
it at IDE vs. AHCI...perhaps reinstalling the OS's again would be
worth it from a performance standpoint?
