With some changes to filo, the sata can be used as normal IDE device in

Last problem in filo is only can boot from port 0 and port 1, and can not
boot from port 2 and port 3. That is SI 3114 limitation.

After install SUSE 9 Pro for AMD64, use following can boot into disk.
hde2:/boot/vmlinuz initrd=/boot/initrd ro root=/dev/sda2 console=tty0

Please note "root=/dev/sda2", because kernel in Suse think it is SCSI just
as new 2.6 kernel.
