New Gigabyte mobo (GA-M61P-S3) and new Seagate SATA drive. Mobo has the nVidia driver set. Installing CentOS 4.4.
When I go to do initial set-up, CentOS can't find SATA driver. When i insert Gigabyte CD, it is not recognized.
CentOS forums refer me to Gigabyte. Gigabyte website support/drivers refers me to driver manufacturer website for download. (That's how I got here!)
I saw and read the sticky about the most recent driver download (1.0-9746 run 2). I downloaded and read the install instructions. Those instructions call for a command line update.
That's impossible at initial set-up and config. Any ideas???
I don't want to run the SATA in RAID configuration, simply as an IDE drive (faster).
