Linux LiveCD that detects SATA Optical Drive and NIC in Dell e520?


Does anyone know of a Linux LiveCD that detects my SATA optical drive in my Dell e520? Seems they're few and far between Thanks!

EDIT: I also need it to detect the onboard NIC. Thanks!

I apologize, I should have been more specific. I need it to detect both my SATA optical drive AND the onboard Intel NIC.
