installing to one of my SATA partition.

I can see you have set a lot of IDE chipset support/bugfixes.  I made some
small research about opteron M/B and found out, IDE chipset needed is AMD and
nVidia, SiImage, Promise, SIS, and VIA.  Have you seen any Intel chip based M/B
for AMD64?  Maybe 4th quarter of this year as e32, but not AMD64.  I do not
know what else IDE chips(including SATA) for AMD64.

There are some products shipped with only SATA disk; thus AMD64-based system
