Is this a sin / Very Very Wrong?
I finally got a SATA disk, and verified that it is much faster than my PATA disks.
Installation went fine, however, my BIOS can't see the disk, (disk works fine once kernel is loaded).
To get it to boot, i had to move /boot/ onto the PATA disk
and simply symlink like this
/boot -> /storage/ide1/boot/
It works fine, but, I'm not sure if this is a sin? I wouldn't want to install the whole system on the IDE disk, as i want the system to run on the SATA..
Please, share you're opinions, and if theres a more elegant way to do it, please enlighten me

I would check the website of your motherboard's manufacturer and see if there's an update to the BIOS. It should be able to detect your SATA drive at boot. Is your SATA controller onboard or was it an add-on card?

harddisks (the only disks it see are the IDE disks on my RAID controller (it sees them as scsi, anyway, it can boot from them)
"Other" (That just hangs if its the only option)
Bios does at no time mention the sata disk, but it will gladly tell me about my IDE disks on the PCI controller, and local ATA devices like my dvd-drive

That's odd. Perhaps the setup you have now is the most elegant solution for you.
