I took a look at it and it is just to enable RAID and it is made for at least a 2.2.x kernel. So it isn't going to help with the primary issue of the interface not being registered. If you find anything else I will look into it.

Did manage to find source patches on Via's website for SATA support, though it's for 2.6.x kernel, so may not be worth the time.

It does give some insight to the chip set, but it is for a 2.6.x kernel. So the source code is not of much use to me. If Justdave were around it might be possible. But I have not heard from him in some time. sorry.

Found some more source, using libata @ http://lxr.free-electrons.com/source/drivers/ata/sata_via.c. Again, not sure if anyone could get the driver to compile on 2.0.x kernel :(

Sorry to say that this code is also for a 2.4.x or 2.6.x kernel. Which by it's self is not that big of a deal, but rather the dozen or more supporting sources and include files that depend on the newer kernel and lib6.

I kinda figured as much, a person's gotta dream a little now and then, lol. Sadly, I'm not well versed in the ways of Linux or C programming, so this isn't a project for me :(

Thanks again for you time.
