Hi all,

I'd like to add a SATA drive to a P4 box that I use as a gateway/server.
The MB doesn't have a SATA interface, so I stuck an Initio-based SATA card
in the box. The kernel recognizes the card, but the attached drive wasn't
displayed when I started up sysinstall to format it. I'm wondering whether
I am missing SATA support. I commented out a bunch of stuff such as the
SCSI controllers when I compiled the kernel with ALTQ support, but these
options *are* included:
# SCSI peripherals
device          scbus      # SCSI bus (required for SCSI)
device          ch         # SCSI media changers
device          da         # Direct Access (disks)
device          sa         # Sequential Access (tape etc)
device          cd         # CD
device          pass       # Passthrough device (direct SCSI access)
device          ses        # SCSI Environmental Services (and SAF-TE)

Should this be enough? I don't see any specific references to SATA in the
