and yes, the errors you were seeing had to do w/ the SATA driver.
There is no such thing (not yet at least) as a bord w/ the dirvers installed alread (especially not for linux)

The very nature of a driver is to be an external program which knows what to look for in the particular piece of hardware and then to report information back and forth to the operating system in a pre-determined way (determined by the operating system, ie linux or windows)

so then how would i get the drivers to linux?
can it get them off a usb stick?
if so do i get drivers for the Raptor or drivers for the mainboard's SATA

i meant that i can install XP without needing ANY SATA drivers... the K8N can do that, i believe it can with linux too, but it is very unique in that. no floppy needed.
