Very cool, and kudos to Pete for finding that for you.  I'm coming in
late on this thread, but have a Web page devoted to the SATA (Serial ATA) 
problem on Linux.  See:  "Serial ATA" on http://linuxmafia.com/kb/Hardware .

One thing I'm about to add to it:  The new releases of Knoppix are very
useful in that regard, because they now use 2.6.x installation kernels,
and thus furnish the extremely useful libata SATA driver set.

Cheers,                            The box said "Windows 95, Windows NT 
Rick Moen                          4.0, or better", so I installed Linux.
