That the Sarge installer did not work is not a great surprise as the Sarge
kernel has very limited SATA support.
I would have expected the Etch installer to work though.

00:0f.0 IDE interface: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8237A SATA 2-Port Controller (rev 80)
00:0f.0 0101: 1106:0591 (rev 80)

Thank you for for the lspci information. I cannot find your controller in
the modules.pcimap for 2.6.17 or 2.6.18, which explains why your disks are
not found.

Reassigning your report to the kernel team.
