…search. I need a PCMCIA card that will just work with my Dell M65, my Thinkpad A31 both using the 2.6.24-23-generic. The official list says I got it already (INEO, External SATA, 32bits Cardbus is making the *right* sata_sil driver load), but when I start computer with new 1TB Seagate 7600.11 attached, no drive. Might be drive speed issue.
blkid produces no record of the drive unless I connect it via usb cable (that’s how I got ext3 format on it).

yenta and sata_sil are 2 of 3 interrupts on 19

At least I am learning a lot about:

fstab, mtab and things like hwinfolspci -v and lspci -vvnn
Serial ATA (SATA) Linux hardware/driver status report
Silicon Image 3124 family
