As of fiesty Fawn, I still am unable to make this work. I have the newest release, just downloaded it today. If I set the boot args to "no apic no lapic" it loads kubuntu, but the grub is screwed up and I cant load to windows. I constantly get a "ata?.01: failed to set xfermode (err_mask=0x40)". I'm really unhappy as i haven't been able to put a linux distro on my new comp since i built it last year. I am using the intel 965 board.

my current setup is 4 hard drives. 2 on the jmicron and 2 aren't. the 2 that aren't show fine. Problem is, one that is is my data drive and holds all my backups/scripts/etc. if you actually have a fix for this... it would be nice to get it into a distribution so i can start using ubuntu/kubuntu again.
