hi,

does slackware support SATA harddisks? i have a new one and a SATA controller for the motherboard. how would i get slack to recognize these? do i need a kernel patch?

Deals with sata and installing it with custom kernel and all, not alot of info but good description of booting off a custom kernel.. might want to try searching the forum for your question.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.

newbie
 
I'm in a different situation. I have a normal everyday run of the mill boot drive (IDE 6 GB) but am using an 80GB SATA drive for my data drive.

Um... How do I get to it to partition and format it?????

I'll post my gazillion other questions elsewhere... :)
