I think the kernel can support it.but sometimes,you need to recompile kernel.The version 2.4.20 ,I think,can support Western Digital Spartan Hard Drive .

Am I able to install Debian 5 then? When I go through the install, it gets to the partition part and looks for my hardware. It then asks me to specify the module for the harddrive. Unless I connected my drive wrong, which I will go check, I assume I would need to know the module. Or would I completely need to use a different kernel, since it is 2.6.26.
