    The release you're using is a little over a year old and has no SATA support so I'd guess that's the problem. You'll need to move up to a newer release with a 2.6 series kernel or you might be able to patch and recompile your 2.4 series kernel. Not sure about that though. If you can patch and recompile the 2.4 kernel you'd have to have Linux installed and running to do it.
    OH NOOOOO!!!!!! You did it the way I said?

    Thanks U-Turn, just found out about the same thing... but it seems that suse 9.1 does recognize SATA hard drives, so i think thats the next move...
