smartmonitor-tools not working with sata drives

I have problems to start smartmonitor-tools:

> smartctl -i -d ata /dev/sda -T permissive
> smartctl version 5.32 Copyright (C) 2002-4 Bruce Allen
> Home page is http://smartmontools.sourceforge.net/

the hardware setup:

- mobo: Asus A8N-SLI
- 2 sata harddrives: 300 GB Samsung 300 GB
- kernel: 2.6.8-12-amd64-k8

Any help is appreciated.
