Tried several distros but no success :-((

Having these problems:
- waiting for root device
- and no mouse and keyboard for installation

I found out that the problem is the ATI SB400 chipset which is not included in the distros I have (Kalyway, iDeneb, iATKOS, at last I tried the current iATKOS S3 v2 but same problem "waiting for root device")

please help me!!!
