Well certainly 2.6.14 doesn't know what that card is.  I suspect it
might be either way too new, or it is a fakeraid card, and disabling the
fake raid turns it into a supported sata controller instead.

In fact I can't find your card mentioned on google at all, so it must be
pretty new or very unusual.  What is this card?  What model?  Certainly
isn't supported yet given noone has apparently seen one before now.
