Same here; however, on a similar-but-different Shuttle box I bought for 
my son recently the only Linux I could get to install was the Ubuntu 
Intrepid Ibex beta (release version 8.10 is now out).  Tried several 
other recent Linux versions including CentOS 5, Fedora 9 (haven't tried 
10 pre-release yet), OpenSuse, PClinuxOS, Knoppix, and Ubuntu Hardy. 
None could see the disk.  Windoze XP worked.  :-(

An enterprise Linux should never be expected to support the latest 
hardware.  Maybe CentOS 5.3 or 6 when they hit the e-street???  Until 
then, you may well be stuck with some more bleeding-edge release.
