Sounds like you are out of luck. Perhaps the other OSes that work for you is the way to go.

Mike, I don't want to get into a flame war here, as I've already been through this when the ATA drivers were first released: no matter what hardware I've used them with, I've had issues. The oldest I can understand, but I gave it another go two weeks ago with modern, brand new hardware (a new SiS based Asus that was on the HCL when I bought it, and a Maxtor 40g IDE) and had the same results. The 4.8 was rebuilt last night with WD drivers, and the 5.1 was *supposed* to be rebuilt tonight, thus my email. The ATA drivers are buggy has hell, regardless of all the screaming I've heard to the contrary: timeouts, with or without DMA disabled, hard write errors, etc. I just can't do it - especially since I am constantly told the drivers are good, and my hardware is bad: if I take the setup that dies under ATA and load either WD or *any other OS*, they work flawlessly.
I am a FBSD shop, have been since 2.2.5R, but I cannot use the ATA drivers - I need something reliable (speed is irrelevant if it doesn't work).
Hrmmm.... I wasn't meaning to rant on you. I just looked up and there it was :-( Sorry... Frustration.
