Bug#291347: debian-installer: SiS5513 IDE Module doesn't work,, must use ide-generic or ide based systems won't work

Package: debian-installer
Severity: critical
Justification: breaks system unless you can boot another way and apply

This is also a kernel bug, but I don't know how to send the report to
both debian-installer (which needs to work around the problem or get
questions on why an affected system will not boot on reboot after
install), and the kernel (because that's where the source of the problem

On my current system with a PCChips M599LMR motherboard, the install
succeeded, but on reboot my cd-rw didn't work.  modprobe ide-generic
fixed that, and further investigation revealed that the module loaded by
default (sis5513) has no effect.  This means that even though the board
is detected sis5513 the module required the ide parts of the system to
work is ide-generic.  For most people with an ide main hd rather than
scsi, they wouldn't just have a non-funcitonal cd-rom they'd have an
unbootable system, which is bad.

If you need more info about this system I'd be happy to provide it, and
I am pretty sure that I have seen at least one install report on the
mailing list that sounds like it wouldn't boot for this reason -
unfortunately I didn't have a workaround at that time, so I didn't post

Oh yes, this is using the rc2 netinst cd
