    slackware compatible to sata drives?


    i tried to install slackware 10.0 and 10.1 on my computer and both times was unable to because of the lack of compatibility with my sata drives. does slackware 10.2 finally recognize them? i'd hate to download all 4 cd's and then figure out that it doesn't work. the slackware site says that there's a boot option for the 2.6 kernel, but i just wanted to make sure with you guys.

    thanks

    You only need the first two CDs (in fact if you don't want KDE, Tetex or the 2.6 kernel source you only need the first) unless you want to compile all your programs (since it contains the source).

    However, Slackware 10.2 does support SATA either using:
    sata.i

    or

    test26.i (I think)
