Does anyone know if AHCI is built into the Linux Kernel that comes with
openSUSE 11.1? Please reply.

AHCI is a class of SATA controllers. The basic AHCI functionality is
definitely in the kernel.

The reason you need to test is to see if the specific controller /
PCI-bus / etc. that you have will trigger the AHCI driver to load and

If it does not, it is typically straight forward to get PCI-IDs, etc.
added to the vanilla kernel, but that will not help you.

Therefore, I still recommend you test via the LiveCD OpenSUSE
provides. It uses the same kernel as the full product and one of the
reasons it exists is to allow people such as yourself to perform
hardware compatibility tests.
