It's SATA - it's a 3ware 9500S-4LP controller. I can just hope it would have
detect any drive problem (even if it would result because of bad cabeling). If
not I don't know why I had a raid controller anyway ;)
The only other disk drive I've on that system is an USB attached hdd for backup
purpose... So I can't realy try having the swap somewhere else..
