I'm using Debian, now I started move to 4.0 Etch.
I'm planning to use SATA drive for periodical backup, for this I have bought a SATA/RAID
addon card based on VIA6421L chip which is support hotplug.
Motherboard is an MSI694DProDual (VIA chipset) with two P3 866 MHz, there are a lots of other things, such as AIC-7892A U160 SCSI controller, D-Link gigabit ethernet card, Creative Labs SB Live, nVidia Vanta AGP controller (onboard)
Debian 4.0 installed as base and vanilla kernel 2.6.18-4-686 SMP.
After all if I put on a SATA drive (also supports hotplug - WD800) using Vipower Mobil Rack - happens nothing! What is wrong? Some one successed installing hotplug SATA subsystem?
