:What's the current status of serial ATA support?
:Freebsd 4-STABLE seems to have it close to nil, and I don't feel like 
:needing freebsd 5.3.
    Well, basically SATA controllers look almost like normal IDE controllers
    so the issue is mostly just adding support for the PCI IDs.  If a 
    device is not recognized report your pciconf -l and dmesg output and
    if FreeBSD-5.x/6.x has support for the ID we can usually bring it in
    fairly quickly.
