SATA drives on Linux
Date: Sun, 06 Jul 2003 10:10:10 +0200
As far a I understand, from a hardware point of view the
new serial ATA controllers looks like an IDE controller to the OS.
The motherboards I have been looking at that supports SATA drives
also has support for IDE drives. Now if one wants to use a SATA drive
for Linux, should one somehow disable aome/all of the IDE controller
in BIOS ? Can someone who has actually used these new drives give some
clarity on what is involved in using SATA drives with Linux ?
