Mandrake and SATA drive ?

I am tired of Windows .... I have used Mandrake before but this time I want to switch over and never go back to Windows again.
I want to buy Mandriva 2007 so that I can get all the software I will need.

What I would like to know is if I can install Mandriva on a Maxtor 300Gig SATA drive (RAID 0)
I do not want o spend money and then find out Mandriva cant be used on my SATA drive.

I use Mandriva 2007 (free) with 3 SATA drives - no problems here. You should be just fine. BTW - 2007 rocks you will like it a lot.
