/me peeks in a notices the thread hasnt had a reply in 14 hours so far...

Oh well. I'll be the first to explain this.
A lot of things get answered pretty quickly here. But, when a certain question gets asked practically on a weekly basis, it tends to get passed over.

Basically. You really need to use the search feature. I've commented in at least 5 threads already on redhat alone, that SATA does not work.

Reason. SATA is not, at all, not one bit, supported in a usable manner, until you install onto a PATA drive and then patch the kernel for SATA unless your using kernel 2.6 which does have some SATA support and may actually work...

Anyway, hope that clears things up. Next time, check with the search first, as it answers things a lot faster for all of us when questions arent repeated weekly.
