And therein lies the problem.  As mentioned, it's a SATA issue.  I did
get Slax and Hoary to see the drive as /dev/sda1. This was from livecds
as I was doing some troubleshooting, not actually installing it but the
GX620 acted the same way.  You may have to use a boot parameter to be
able to install it to something other than /dev/hda.
