I popped a 2-port Sonnet Tempo SATA card into my 9600. Everything seems to be working fine with the exception of a weird shutdown error. Every time I click Shut Down and boot up again in System 7, OS8 or OS9, it gives me the, "Your computer crashed or was not shut down properly the last time it was used" error. This doesn't happen on the internal SCSI drive, it only happens when shutting down from a SATA drive. I disabled the error message in the General thing from the Apple menu for now but I'm curious if anyone else has this issue. I read that others don't experience this on their G4 machines, so maybe it's only for a 9600 + SATA card combo. I guess I could try downgrading the firmware to 5.1.3 but I'm worried about doing that since everything else is working fine.
