It (or patches to 2.4.22) is also needed if you decide to buy a modern
machine right now. I've had to dig up an old plain IDE disk to stage a
Linux install to my dual SATA drives in my new machine.

Otherwise the beta installer worked fine.

The strange thing with SATA support is that I couldn't get the modules
in debian's 2.6.0-test9 kernel to recognize my drives, but a self
compiled 2.6.0-test9-bk19 kernel with the SATA drivers (for promise and
via) compiled in did work.
