Newest Slackware on Sata Drives

How well does the newest stable slackware install on sata? Are there any quirks I should be aware of?

No, everything is ok. Sata works with default kernel too.

I've got Slackware-current running on a Dell Optiplex with SATA - it's quick and stable. I didn't see any quirky behaviour.
