I recently read about SATA drives and the kernel and I gather that
they aren't well supported with our present kernel. Should be ok in
the latest 2.6.15 I think. At any rate don't be surprised if you
have problems, be sure to have a means of starting XP on the SATA
drive if its MBR gets hosed when you try to write to it.
Linux Kubuntu 5.0.4
KDE v. 3.4.2
Kontact v. 1.1.2
