SATA hard drives run without problems for me, but now that SATA
optical drives are starting to appear in the shops, would it be OK to
buy one of these and get rid of another wide ribbon cable?
Is anybody already running them with Fedora?
Not with Fedora but I found on my home Slackware system that a SATA CD
drive was easier to get going than a 'legacy' PATA one. I actually
bought a SATA one to enable me to boot successfully from CD. This was
because the JMB legacy IDE interface drivers are (or at least were) a
bit dodgy. The SATA CD 'just worked' when I connected it.
