All sata drives are handled through the scsi subsystem, therefore, they all have /dev/sd prefixes (/dev/sda is your first sata drive usually). Type "cat /proc/partitions" for a listing of drives and partitions that have been detected.

You failed to mention your hardware configuration, and your kernel version, etc..

A lot depends on the motherboard. Most PATA ide controllers (ribbon cable) are handled by the ata_piix driver. There are a few others for 3rd party controllers. First, check to see if ata_piix is loaded.

If you have one of the new Intel 965 boards, best of luck to you. The pata controller is a stripped down version of Marvell's SATA Raid PCIe controller ductaped to the ICH8, and not currently supported in Linux (last I checked - 8/31).

If this doesn't help, please post more hardware details. The output from lspci will help.

There is hope for you yet! I did some research on your system, and found that it uses a JMicron Technologies AHCI controller. This is listed in the pci.ids table that ships with Mandriva 2007rc1. So there is potential Linux support for your system. You might try getting a newer test kernel for Ubuntu, or switching to Mandriva. Also, your audio is listed as a Realtek ALC883 codec. Could you send me the output from "lspci -s 0:1b -vn"? I'm currently working on the Intel HDA audio drivers, and will see about getting specific support for your board added to alsa.
