SATA drives on 10.0
I'm having problems detecting SATA drives. A google suggested certain
kernels gave problems, so, so far, I've tried kernels
2.6.13-15-default 2.6.13-15.7-default and 2.6.13-15.8-default, all
give the same problem.
A bit more background, which may or may not be relevant, I'm booting
the machine via a network, using drbl, so the kernel resides on a
server, which has IDE drives. So would all relevant stuff for SATA be
in the kernel, or do I need to add it?
I know the SATA drives can be accessed, as I can network boot into an
old kernel, which does detect the drives.
Any help would be much appreciated.

... At the risk of getting flamed for asking a basic question here, could I suggest that a kernel and/or driver developer provide a brief "how-to acticle" somehere that explains the way things have changed from the early 2.6.x days to more recent kernels like 2.6.14 or 2.6.15 with respect to configuring fundamental devices like IDE drives, SATA drives, and ATAPI drives. ...
