Many (but not all) SATA controllers support hot-swap, and most drives. However, we have none of the software support necessary to enable it. Others will have to answer the remainder of your questions about how we might gain that support. There's been a lot of support added recently for attach/detach of various drivers, so I would imagine you could try that approach on the pciide controller at least, even without support for hotplug on the bus. -- Dan. > 2.
