Virtually any SATA chipset on a PC motherboard supports hot-swap these
days, as long as you're in AHCI mode (which you should be in anyway
with Linux, though you should check your dmesg/etc).  The biggest
problem I've had with hot-swapping in a PC case is things like
daisy-chain power cables which make it very difficult to remove drives
physically if they're not in the right position.
