I did confirm that the ahci kernel was loaded, as I state above.  As for
which driver it needs, I believe that it is the ata_piix driver. See the
2.6.18 kernel changelog[1] which contains this:

    Take into account the fact that ICH8 changed the register layout of
    the MAP and PCS register bits.

Here is the dmesg output from a kanotix live CD:
