Hard drive not detected with 2.6 kernel


I have a new laptop, an IBM Thinkpad T43.  So, of course, I
immediately started putting Debian on it with RC2.  The first problem
I ran into is that the integrated ethernet card (Broadcom NetXtreme)
was not recognized.  So I selected the tg3 driver, and it worked fine.
Using the 2.4 kernel, I was able to install a new system.

However, for various reasons I won't go into, I wanted to use the 2.6
kernel.  Unfortunately, the netinst iso can not detect my hard drive.
I get a "No partionable media" error.  I get a similar problem if I
build a custom 2.6 kernel and use it on my 2.4 install.

I have tried with "noapic nolapic" and "noapic nolapic acpi=off", but
I still get the same error.  The hard drive is a Fujitsu MHT2060AH.

Are there any other kernel options that might work?  I would have
tried a daily build, but the link seems down.
