Exclamation Hotswappable SATA drive

Hello, I've just bought 2x a 320gb serial ATA drive and a mobile rack (wintech). On both drives are data (rsync) from another fileserver. Now I want to hotswap the second SATA drive to carry it with me to home, in case of fire, harddrivecrash or whatever might happen. Whenever I unmount the drive (in software and fysical) and remount it to the case Linux won't detect the drive anymore . Is there a sollution for this? I'd like it to work similair to XP's behavior; but without the whole microcrap. Thanks in advance!

It depends on the SATA controller and the software that handles the controller. I think you can use either hdparm or sdparm.
