I ask this question via e-mail just because I hadn't found such
information in the HandBook.

Q: Does the FreeBSD 5.4 support SerialATA hard drives?
I tried to install previous version (5.3) on the machine
with 160GB Seagate Barracuda (8mb cache) drive (ST3160023AS).
It said something like "no hard drive found".

Where is the problem? As far as I know, Seagate don't provide
drivers for *nix systems. What I should do?
