Can someone explain to why it would be harder to set up SATA Drives on a VIA board then on an Nforce3 board?

VIA boards dont hae native sata... so that means that to install windows, you need to hit F6 first to install SATA drivers. This can be a pain if you dont have a floppy, or if you reinstall windows often... This also means that SATA cdroms, legacy devices, are out of the question.
