Located to the right of the serial and parallel ports are 939sli-esatta2 first two USB 2. The first physical PCI Express x16 connector is located next to the 12V power connector that must be used if two video cards are installed.
When it came to the Linux compatibility with the SLIeSATA2 939sli-edata2 specifically Fedora Core 5, we were satisfied for the most part but there were a few troubling factors with this solution.

More information about the entire line of ASRock 939sli-estaa2 can be found here. The cables were forced to run vertically in between the video cards and then loop over the first video 939sli-ssata2. We typically witnessed temperatures hovering near 59c from this heat sink, although we did not notice any stability issues during load operations. We also have to wonder about the inclusion of the AM2 CPU upgrade slot that seems more like a marketing gimmick than something that will be useful in the future.
The stable configuration in which we executed our same set of tests was with the AMD Athlon 64 at 1.
Fedora Core 5 Linux Kernel: The Asrock layout provides excellent clearance for cards and components and it was easy to install in a mid-size ATX case. All trademarks used are properties of their respective owners.
