Thanks for the feedback.
I have to admit that 'ahci' as a guess and I was wrong about it.
Meanwhile we known that 'ata_piix' is the needed module.
(note to myself: don't gamble on modulenames, just ask for it)
My research for having the PCI IDs 8086:2820 and 8086:2825 in
the file /lib/modules/2.6.18/modules.pcimap was stopped due time
constrains. I hope that (the updated) ata_piix will be loaded
when 2.6.18 arrives in the debian-installer.
(leaving this BR open until 2.6.18 comes in d-i)
