Sounds like a great board. ;-) I have always stuck with Intel (Company I
work for are an IPI) I know I have been brain washed by them but they do
appear to make better products..

Intel 875 Chipset SATA works without any problems.. With the release of
Sarge Beta 3 you can even boot from it without any hard work...

Sorry I can't help....
