Well, I haven't done anything yet, so I have no instructions to offer, but it looks like kernel 2.4.27 added support for SATA. I'm not sure on the exact version, but I know that 2.4.31 in Slack v10.2 has it.
Look in the 'bootdisks' directory of the 1st install disk. In 10.2 there is a kernel called 'bare-sata.i' or something similar with 'SATA' in it. This is also in the list at install time, when it asks you if you want to use a different kernel from the boot disk or CD, etc...
I actually was in the store last night, holding a nice 150G WD Raptor, but then I realized I never got my onboard ethernet & sound working yet, so I put my priorities in order and set to work on that first...
