Default SATA disks go MIA

Hello all and season's greetings.

I have a system which has 5 hard disks connected. Three are IDE and two
are SATA. The IDE disks are performing fine but the SATA disks are a
problem. I've had various issues with them ranging from being unable to
write to them both disappearing from the system without even an error.
Sometimes I do get an error though.

I had this motherboard & CPU pair working in a Windows XP box for a few
months without issue. I say that hesitantly because there are a few brain
cells murmuring in the back of my head but I can not find them to learn
more.

Could this be a flaky SATA controller? Could it be some BIOS setting that
needs tweaked? Or... As always, any help would be appreciated.

The system information is as follows:

Fedora Core 6
uname -a = Linux www 2.6.22.14-72.fc6 #1 SMP Wed Nov 21 15:12:59 EST 2007
i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
Motherboard: ASRock 775Dual-vsta
Chipset: VIAź PT880 Pro/Ultra Chipset
CPU: Intel Pentium D 915 Presler 2.8GHz LGA 775 Dual-Core
Processor Model BX80553915
