SATA RAID? Whew! Let me get up off the floor. I fell off my chair you made me laugh so hard.

I bought an AMD64 computer with three SATA drives not too long ago. My brother bought the exact same machine at the same time. I installed Linux on mine and he tried to install Windows.

I was up and running in less than an hour. Linux detected my SATA drive "out of the box".

On the other hand. My brother was unable to install Windows because the SATA driver that shipped with the motherboard was on a CD, but Windows only supports additional drivers during the install if they are on a floppy drive.

Guess what, nobody buys floppy drives anymore. At least not until they try to install Windows on a machine with a SATA drive and their drivers only come on CD.

Bottom line: Linux supports SATA out of the box. Windows supports SATA out of the box after you drive back to the store to buy a floppy drive and then drive over to your brother's house to ask him to copy drivers off of a CD onto a floppy so you can install Windows XP.
