You'll be stuck on 2.4 forever then.

The SATA driver moving from being IDE drivers to SCSI ones is an upstream (i.e., Linus) kernel change, because the IDE SATA drivers suck. There's nothing you can do about.

The best way I've found to avoid the issue is to install on a 2.6 kernel from the beginning (passing linux26 to debian-installer).

It's an issue I've seen come up on forums I frequent more than a few times now.
