SATA support was added in the change from 2.4.20 to 2.4.21 and improvemants have been made to that support since. The changelogs are the correct place to look for this info, you can also do a search of the kernel mailing list, but that info is what you find in the changelogs after/if the update has merged.

Thank you, Aussie, for the patience I guess you are talking about the line saying "add Intel ICH5 Serial ATA" under "Summary of changes from v2.4.21-rc2 to v2.4.21-rc3"; I don't see anything sata or ata related in the 2.4.21 change log file (nor 2.4.20, 2.4.19, and also upper). I searched with the "search" button, of course.

Also thank you xodustrance for the suggestion; we will see if we're able to install mdk9.2 whitout tricks (he still couldn't get some pieces of the computer , so we still couldn't install anything). If it doesn't work, I'll ask a bit more on your suggestion (I don't know what to do once you have compiled the kernel, unless you mean we install LFS or something like that)

I'm trying to put slack on my SATA hard disk too. i have a pata drive that has winxp and mandrake 9.2 on it right now. For Mandrake, I have a custom 2.6.2 kernel with SATA support (along with support for Silicon Image) compiled into the kernel. however, when I try to load up Mandrake, I get kernel problems. why? also, when i'm trying to install slack, how do I know which drive the SATA is so i can run fdisk on it?

Redhat 9 (Shrike) happens to recognize my SATA drive as hde, if that helps. (i'm also using a PCI adapter card, so I'm not sure if that matters...)
