Thanks anyway. 

e-sata is 'external sata'. The drive is a sata drive (very different 
connection to an IDE) and it's in a case. It has USB and another connector 
for plugging into the PC. USB works fine, but I wanted to try the other 
connector -- that is the e-sata side of things. Apparently one can get 
awesome tranfer speeds that way.

I am fairly sure I enabled the sata stuff in the BIOS, but I could be wrong. 
It's just interesting that I can find no mention of it in the messages or 
logs and plugging-in via that connection has no effect at all -- so I was 
generally wondering if sata/e-sata was supported on Gnu/Linux at all?
