I don't think its a problem with the distro you are using. Even I have
installed SuSE 10.0 and Mandriva 2006 on my desktop which has a Seagate SATA
disk with Intel 865GBF motherboard.
The problem could be because of incorrect BIOS settings. I've been using this
desktop since 2 years and never had a problem with any distro after I made
the necessary BIOS changes. I suggest that you search PLUG archive for my
mails regarding this. There were SATA related discussions on PLUg few months
back. I think reading those should help you.
Please do go through PLUG archive and google before dumping your favourite
