    SATA Migration


    I plan to migrate on to SATA drives sometime soon (when there is ample time) and I would like to know if anyone can give me some pointers when I do this.

    From what I can think of at this point, I would like to ghost my hard drive in to the SATA drive. I suppose I would need to modify the kernel to have SATA support and if anyone can help me out with what options I need to check off, that'd be great.
    The best things in life are free.

    This contains a lot of usefull information, however the HOWTO is somewhat dated. If you have a PATA controller on the board as well connect both drives and boot from the PATA one. The device of the SATA drive(s) may be somewhat different but most of this HOWTO applies in your case. Be sure your kernel has support for the PATA and the SATA controller built in.
