You didn't say which was where.

I've experienced that in the past, on my ABit BE6. I haven't tried
anything since FC4 on it, yet.
One simple workaround is to unplug all but what you need for the
installation, and perhaps temporarily change what those drives are
[tim at bigblack ~]$ rm -rfd /*^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^Huname -ipr
2.6.21-1.3228.fc7 i686 i386
Using FC 4, 5, 6 & 7, plus CentOS 5. Today, it's FC7.
