Default Re: Linux (Debian) and nForce4 SATA/NIC problems

The drives are plugged into the only 2 SATA (1 and 2) ports on the mainboard I'm not using the nVidia RAID by the way.

Another Distro would give me some trouble, since I've been testing a certain Linux Config on Debian, and under debian all the required packages are easily installed without wasting time compiling and finding dependecie for them.
