Question Switching from WinXP to Mandrake-Linux - Help?

I have a gigabyte mainboard 7V-RXP v.2.0. I am currently using the onboard ATA133 slots for my two 40 gig hard drives.... Upon trying to install v. 9.1 of Mandrake on my system, it will not find good drivers for my onboard ATA device. It has the Promise UATA133 (20276) chipset. Ok... now any clues on how to get my drives going here?

Unfortunately, at the moment Promise IDE card support out-of-the-box in current Linux (2.4) kernels/distributions is not very mature.

Maybe the following discussions provide more information :

I did find some information/drivers on the Promise site, but it does not seem very hopeful. See URL :
