Hi Frans Pop,

Thanks for your reply,

SATA support in the Sarge kernels is immature. The errata [1] for the installer already mention this. This is not a subject for the release notes, especially as it seems like every SATA controller seems to have different issues and there is no way to cover them all.

Where do you propose to list the important work-arounds necessary to get
a Debian SATA install working then? I do not think a broken Sarge install
is something which can be acceptable.

There are few chipsets with issues, so I suggest either the release
notes, or as you suggest -- the debian-installer errata would also be

Kind regards
