Simple question on installing Ubuntu on auxiliary SATA drive...

I have an Athlon64 machine with 3 drives -- an IDE main drive with
Windows XP, and 2 auxiliary SATA drives. I have gentoo installed
already on one of the SATA drives and would like to try Ubuntu on the
other SATA drive (already partitioned from a previous Fedora
installation, which I want to replace hopefully with Ubuntu).
The problem I encountered while going through the Ubuntu installation
process (I'm using the warty-amd64 CD) was that the installer detects
only my main IDE drive but not the auxiliary SATA drives. I've tried
booting in "expert" mode but the result is the same. There doesn't seem
to be a choice of which drive I can partition.
Is there some simple step I'm missing? I apologize for the naive
TIA for any help you gurus can offer!
