Amongst other things this box supports Serial ATA drives.
Are there likely to be any troubles installing debian on a box with a
SATA hard drive?
The chipsets are:
North Bridge: i865G
South Bridge: iCH5-R
Can anyone point me to some good documentation relating to SATA and
not sure what R in ICH5-R means (I have intel D865-PERL motherboard
with ICH5, at least I think it's ICH5 and SATA works)
you need fairly recent kernel (2.4.22 or something like that). Note
that if you are using HD that's above 130GB you might need even newer
I use 2.4.21-ac4 with libata5 patches (ac4 for SATA, libata5 for
SATA disks can be seen as ide of scsi, I have only had success with
scsi (kernel config CONFIG_SCSI_ATA_PIIX=y), otherwise the syustem
freezes right after the disks are detected
