I had the same problem when I was using the SATA compiled as a module for some
reason the kernel would load the generic IDE PATA controller and the module
that would detect the kernel would be VIAVPIDE or something like that which
would assign the device as /dev/hde. But when SATA controller is built into
the kernel then the kernel loads sata_via module and detects the drive on
/dev/sda. I havent been able to fix as of yet.
