Oh, I don't want to wring you...

But the problem is with the SATA adapters on the motherboard (or
possibly a separate card), not with the drives. A quick Google suggests
that the Original Poster has a SiS 965L South Bridge.

Unfortunately, http://linuxmafia.com/faq/Hardware/sata.html#sis-965l
says "No known open-source drivers".

This isn't what he wanted to hear, but I'd suggest a parallel ATA drive
for Linux.
