Hey Al,
According to the site it was updated recently "Revised: Tue Feb 27
17:39:37 PST 2007". The reason it mentioned 2.4.27 is that some people
are still running 2.4 series kernels. It is mentioning that sata support
was merged into the libata driver from 2.4.27 onwards and is already in
the 2.6 kernels.
