Hi there,

Well I got myself a motherboard, I just went into PCWorld and bought an
Epox NForce2 ultra400 (punish me for going to PCWorld later!). I also
ended up buying a new power supply (ultra quiet one), so I have finally
bloody got a plug for my sata. But....

Here it comes, my god damned stupid adaptec proprietry crappy SATA card
does not bloody work in linux! :P (see I can do it hehe!!).

They give out drivers for redhat 9, but no bloody source, the stupid
bastards, don't the realize some of us don't use redhat and use things
like gentoo?????? It bloody annoys me. Oh the SATA card is seen by
2.6.3, but the point is I keep getting this message:

hde: lost interupt

It appears that the Adaptec AAR1210SA is based on a Silicon Image 3112.
Frustrating............ Has anyone had any luck with this sorta thing? I
know its not my card causing grief (windows (.......) installed fine
(after having my the bootable cd supplied by adaptec lockup because it
didn't like my ide controllers!!)).

I am tempted to write a new driver myself, but I rather save myself the
time and buy a new one! Uh so has anyone fought with this type of card
