Optiplex 745: Fedora Core 6 i686 install and problems.

Fedora Core 6 i686 installs on the system but it has some interesting
problems when running. The first problem is that each time it boots I
get a set of errors when it tries to connect to ata4. The second
problem is that the ATI video does not work in dual display. I think
this is because the hardware is not know to X currently. For reasons
outside of my control, the Optiplex is looking to be standardized for
RHEL-5 in 2007 so I would like to figure out any workarounds/fixes :).

Thanks
