Kernel Panic after F7-32 install on nforce based board

Hi All,

I have a Asus A8N-E motherboard with two WD 36GB Raptors in a  
NVRAID-0 configuration for Windows XP and a WD 250GB IDE drive for  
Fedora.  I have had Fedora Core 6 installed on this system  
previously, but with the new AMD/ATI driver that supports Fedora 7 [I  
have a X1800XL], I finally decided to upgrade.  I wiped out the 250GB  
drive that housed the FC6[32] install, and did a default just like I  
did for FC6 for F7.  After a seemingly normal install, upon reboot I  
get a Kernel Panic because the system can not located the hard  
drive.  I thought it might be an LVM thing, so I re-installed with  
non-lvm partitioning [/boot,swap,/], and still that failed.  One  
thing that I noticed for the install of F7 was the loading of the  
pata-nvidia driver.  I don't remember seeing that when I installed  
FC6.  I find it odd that the IDE drive was being assigned a SDC dev  
name instead of an HDA dev name.  Could this be part of the problem?   
Needless to say, I am at a stand still unless I can get this  
resolved.  I found this link that has a similar issue:  http://

Has anyone run into this problem and successfully fixed it?

Thanx in advance!
