Hi Colin,

I'm not sure but I assume the PATA is the regular IDE interface? If so that's 
where my main ATA133 drive is connected to.

I have downloaded the 9/22/04 build of the warty-amd64 cd and will try to 
install Ubuntu again tonight. I'll report back about the results.

Thanks for the help!

-Kevin
