SATA hard drive and Mandriva 10.1


Ok, just a warning, I am pretty much a complete and utter Linux newbie. I am using Mandriva 10.1. Kernel is 2.6.8.1-12mdk. I cannot see my Seagate Barracuda 200GB serial ATA150 hard drive. I have no clue where to even begin for detecting it. Any help, and in small words (with no quick movements) would be most helpful.

As far as I know SATA hard drives are seen by the kernel as SCSI devices

Most kernels are not built with SCSI support, hence it can't see your drive

As by your own admission you are a "complete and utter Linux newbie" perhaps recompiling your kernel may not be an option
