    ASUS says its not supported

    But when searching for info about S-ATA and hot plug, it found that
    ICH5 on the 865 supports it and my HD seagate 120 GB does as well. The
    last components the OS and the BIOS must as well support it. (I will
    soon test Linux and XP)

    Of course I must have a mobile rack also.
    Thera are S-ATA controllers for example tekram (40 euros) that claims
    support for hot plug. Is it just a BIOS and a driver issue or what ?
    It seems that not many have tried this feature of S-ATA and thats
    suprises me.

    It's not supported due to the Windows IDE drivers. Blame Intel for not
    releasing proprietary ones.
