Has anyone tried the seagate barracuda 7200.7 120GB sata drives. I have 
a ich5r controller. I can get suse to boot past them with playing with 
the bios. No other distribution will get past them unless I disconnect 
them. Then when I put them back on, it sees them, but will not use them. 
I figured I just had the setup for the ich5r wrong. As it turns out, I 
swapped in a Hitachi 160GB deskstar, and everyone is happy. Problem is I 
ordered theses drives with the computer (Daktek) to use as a Backuppc 
server for the LTSP and Beyond. I'm just cheap and want to use these!I 
tried firmware updates, but they are up todate, Different controller maybe?
