Which raises another question...

Last week I tried installing Redhat's GinGin preview of their x86_64 distro
and the SATA drives were not detected.  Had to switch in a parallel drive.

Searching the mailing lists I got the impression that the Promise SATA
chipset is unlikely to be supported (soon) and people should use Silicon
Image based controllers.

Has anyone on the list had experience with SATA and Linux?
