I know that the ICH8 SATA drivers were added in 2.6.18, as I got this
box installed using debootstrap and a kanotix live cd (which has
2.6.18). After installing the base system with at 2.6.18 kernel, I was
able to boot the box with the stock debian 2.6.18 kernel. So, I can't
remember right now exactly which module it is, but this is basically a
"please add the 2.6.18 kernel to d-i" request. Or, backport the Intel
ICH8 SATA drivers...
