Serial ATA Harddisk ONLY


I've got a computer which has a Serial ATA Harddisk only.
Can I install the Debian 3.0r2 without any extra work (load module or ...)?

If you still have this question after almost a month, here you go: First, the harddisk access is dependent not on the Debian distro, but on the kernel version/setup. In terms of default kernels - yes, you can use 3.0r2's kernel 2.4 series default with no hassles. Just make sure that you use the 2.4 series kernel (I think the installer gives you a prompt asking which kernel version), since 3.0r2 also has a kernel 2.2 series in it. Kernel 2.2 may very well still work, but I'm not completely sure.
