SATA on an ASUS P4C800

Has anyone had any luck getting SATA to function in RH9 on an ASUS P4C800?

I keep getting device not found. It is using a promise 150 SATA controller, but promise only has drivers from 7.3 and 8.0, and judging from previous posts, these drivers didn't work anyhow under their respective distros.

I finally got it working BUT with the intel ICH5 controller, not the Promise controller; I'm not using RAID and don't mind, but don't know if that's your case.

I connected a Maxtor 120 GB to the ICH5 connector, changed the BIOS Ide settings to Compatible mode and installed RH9. After upgrading through RH network to the latest kernel release, 2.4.20-20.9smp, I could change the BIOS setting to Enhanced mode and reboot without problems.

I had to edit the /etc/fstab file to adjust the new letter assigned to the disk in the swap partition entry (it changed from hdc2 to hde2).
