Re: New PC, new install, new problems!
Please sorry for my English...
I tried a couple of recent Linux live-CDs (Knoppix 5.0 & latest Ubuntu, both debian-based) and both failed to fully recognize my hardware.
Most notably the SATA disks were not seen.
I have installed Ubuntu
6.06 on a machine with SATA disk and it's working well. I did not need any parameters or drivers.
