Hi, yes it is possible to use eSata with Linux. It might not work out of the box though.

If the eSata controller is not recognized automatically by Linux, check your motherboard manufactures website and see if they provide specific Linux drivers for your motherboard.

If you can't find drivers on the motherboard manufactures website, you have to find out the exact type of your eSata controller. Because you might be able to find drivers on the controller manufacturers website.


Good Luck
