Additional information

Could not install CentOS 5.0. Because it can't probe SATA controller.

To run Wi-Fi card I had to install ndiswrapper driver from ATrpms repository. It didn't work by native driver "bcm43xx.ko". If you use Wi-Fi card, You should be remove or move "bcm43xx.ko" from "/lib/modules".
