    Default Hard disk sata/ata

    I have installed ATA hard disk on my fedora and it shows hda in df -h command. I have seen the issue in some other rhel too..is there any other option to confirm whether installed hd is a SATA or ATA

    Its not an issue that /dev/hda is for ATA and /dev/sda is for sata/scsi hard drives.

    fdisk -l will show the statistics of any disk installed in the linux system. You may use lshw command to find out more details about the hardware of the hard disk.

    Latest driver under Linux kernel 2.6.xx show many IDE devices as sda. There is no need to worry about it.
