There IS a Linux native way to unlock hard drives (no WINE or free beer involved). However, they really emphasize how dangerous and untested it is, and to use at your own risk.

You go to terminal and use the hdparam program. You specify the "--security-unlock [password here]" parameter. Here is a link to the man page: http://linux.die.net/man/8/hdparm. Ctrl+f for "ATA Security Feature Set" and it will be under there.

So depending how much you value what's on the drive, you may or may not want to try it.
