Hey Ross,

You've hit on the answer to a degree, install SuSE on the ata100 disk,
then build the kernel with sata. You may need to google for the driver if
it's not in the kernel so your luck may vary. I did exactly this when i was
getting the GigaRAID stuff working on my machine. Shame I had to do
programming stuff to make it happen though.

Hope this help,
