It seems Mandrake Linux 9.2 doesn't recognize Seagate SATA 8M HDD's either, at least without knowing how to manually configure it entering
base_address ( a number)
controller_type (a number)
which involves finding some esoteric 6-10 hexadecimal code with the prefix "0x" which someone who reads these forums ought to know exactly how to find, but aren't currently available to to explain right now.
I wish I could do them some kind of favor, if they would tell me.
