i have a via epia, and i recall needing the CONFIG_BLK_DEV_VIA82CXXX option
turned on in my kernel.  i also recall that this option wasn't available until
late in the 2.4 kernel stream.  you might confirm that this is turned on in
your boot kernel.  the config for a debian boot kernel is usually easy to find
on the boot media.
