are there any special parameters i have to pass to work w/ a SATA drive?
i booted up and it said it couldnt find any partitions to work with and it wouldnt let me right to the drive
so im creating the partitions w/ parition magic
for future reference how would you partition a SATA?

not all sata drives are supported by linux...
its a seagate 200gb barracuda model# st3200822as
this si a work computer, im in the geek squad at bestbuy - im not gonna sweat over this if i cant get it to work, ive been using knoppix constantly to recover some data and repair partitions and i just wanted a slackware box on hand when i need it so...
if its not supported its not gonna matter

maybe a stupid Q. but you did try /dev/sda ?
( well....you're not a newbie.... )
THANK YOU!!! that worked
i am a newbie, in some areas - i guess getting a SATA drive to work would be one of those areas
but i can make do - ive been using linux on and off for a couple years but not diving down deep in it
thanks for the help - i thought if i gave it the right kernel then i could use /dev/hda :shrugs:
learn somethin new all the time
