- make sure you have recent install, I think you need at least kernel
2.6.9 (or maybe higher, the early 2.6.x kernels didn't work)
- you can choose SATA disks to appear as regular IDE disks (/dev/hd*)
or SCSI disks (in kernel config: CONFIG_SCSI_SATA=y, plus module for
your chipset (lspci should tell you what you have) and SCSI disk support)
then check your boot messages, the disks should be recognized...
