needing to install linux on VT8237 chipset and move to SiS 964


I am using a serial ata hd on a chipset that is unsupported in kernel 2.6.4, but my friend has a computer with the VIA VT8237 chipset, which is supported. If i were to install linux onto my hard drive using his computer, would i be able to simply apply the libata patch and then put the hard drive back in my computer with the SiS chipset and have it running just fine?

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.
