I have just bought the Lite-On Corp CD-RW/DVD Model SHC-S257K0SC SATA Drive. It allowed me to install linux as I was not able to before on my CD-RW/DVD-RW IDE drives. I bought the drive for $40.00 at the PC Club
I went to Fry's electronics and Comp USA and neither had a drive that was SATA. In fact Fry's didn't know what I was talking about, and I didn't even bother asking Comp USA. Anyway I think that this is the solution if you couldn't install due to the install crapping out in the beginning. I believe this is due to the communication bewteen the IDE and SATA interfaces, they don't speak to each other when trying to install linux.
