AFAIK, there are a lot of SATA controllers, and every one of them is
different, so there is no such thing as "SATA support" which ensures
that every SATA disk will work. The kernel included in Debian 4.0 (etch),
however, has a lot more SATA controllers than the one in Debian 3.1 (sarge),
so it's more likely to work if you have a recent computer.

If it does not work, try submitting a detailed bug report (preferably,
without the HTML stuff).
