    knoppix 3.3 and SATA-- won't boot-- HELP!

    hi all,

    i just found this board although i've been posting similar questions over on the gentoo forums. i'm trying to use knoppix 3.3 with a SATA hard drive and all i get are errors-- segfaults, kernel panics, etc. i've tried to use the nodma flag and nothing seems to work.

    my mobo is a Abit IC7-G and i've tried both the Silicon Image and ICH5 controllers, with the same results.

    any ideas as to what the problem is?

    thanks for any info!
    patrick

    ok, i tried to install win XP and it failed 3/4 of the way thru formatting the HD-- is it possible that i have a bad drive or controller?

    what do all you guru's think?

    So, I presume that the drive is detected by BIOS/controller without any problems.

    Recheck your connections and consider removing/disabling all non-essential components (sound card, NIC, al other hard drives, etc.) until you can isolate the problem.

    -SUO, uses a Raptor ... just not with KNOPPIX (until someone builds in a 2.6 kernel!)
