    IDE controllers

    I've got a Promise technology Ultra 100tx2 IDE controller. Which distributions/versions of Linux will support it?

    Redhat should

    Any distro with a recent 2.4.x kernel should too.

    redhat supported it out of the box for rh 7.1 and rh 7.2, it was prety easy to ste up with debain too.

    edit: that is for the promise 20265 controller - whcih is a UDMA controntroler.

    Debian support for ATA100 is a bitch. It required you to boot off of separate ISO CD, which is not part of Debian 5 CD set. I would say if you are just looking for easy set up of any
    Linux distro that support ATA100, then I would say go for Red Hat which support out of the box and it required you to have only two CDs.
