Serial ATA (SATA)... anyone?

I'm going to buy a new box and the motherboard supports sata, so I might get a sata HD as well... I only don't know if arch can be installed on such a disk? Will the installer recognize the disk?

Does anyone use sata with arch?

Re: Serial ATA (SATA)... anyone?

I just installed linux on an Intel Board with SATA.  I had to use the -ac1 patch for 2.4.22 for the SATA to work properly (shows up as a SCSI device).  Before using that patch the board had ATA emulation that ran like crap but at least let me get the OS installed.

Re: Serial ATA (SATA)... anyone?

thx, so it is possible

nevertheless I've decided to buy a regular ata disk, to avoid this kind of problems, not only for arch, but I like to experiment with other osses too - and the speed advantage isn't THAT big anyway
