Has anybody else tried an install using 9.3 on any SATA disks?

I've emailed support@suse.com to see if I can get any joy.

I simply cannot understand how they could have released 9.3
without support for sata disks, when they've been around for so long!

bluefrog;
It's actually a kernel issue, 9.2 uses the 2.6.8 kernel.

However, if you can't get it to work on 9.3, which uses the 2.6.11 kernel I would have to question that it's a kernel issue.

I know that in Gentoo, Fedora, and Arch, Sata just plum does not work on 2.6.8 but it does on .11

Very strange.
