The only issue I've ever seen has been with the onboard fakeraid stuff
more and more vendors seem to be adding. I've been using SATA disks
with centos since the early 4.x days without issue, so you have me at
a bit of a loss here. I'd say if anything it's due to controller
support, and much of that can be chalked up to what hardware vendors
are pawning off as 'controllers' these days.

During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.
