Hmm, maybe R9200SE problem was a bios issue that Tyan fixed. Personally, I 
would avoid the R9200SE as it's a cut down version of R9200 and doesn't cost 
that much less. Especially if you need to compile X 4.3.99 to get it to work.

Good to here about the SIL3114 SATA working. I guess now it's time to make a 
boot image that support it too on install.
