what's the state of SATA support in DFly? For my SATA disk I get:

ad4: DMA limited to UDMA33, non-ATA66 cable or device

This may not strictly be a SATA problem. I've been having that error message this 
week with a 30gb PATA drive, though it only started after a BIOS upgrade to my mobo 
which added SATA features. This problem also causes a read error "resetting device" 
message to show up during normal disk activity, and a far less frequent reset because 
of a write error.
