the probable reason k12ltsp is not installing is that the kernel in
centos 5.0 does not recognize your 8237S southbridge chip. Your only
chance to get it to work would be centos 5.2 kernel which has updated
Sata drivers. One option, although a hassle, would be to install on
another box then "yum update" to centos version 5.2. Then put that
drive back into your original MB. BTW if you have 2 drives, I would
configure them in a software raid 1 for reliablity and speed if you
are going to using this for a production system.

PS Stephen when you reply to messages it seems you are removing the
"Re:" from the beginning of the subject header. This is causing every
new post of yours to create a new thread. Please try to correct this.
