There is problem with support for Marvell SATA IDE controllers in legacy
mode as included in the 2.6.26-11 kernel image used for that daily image. 
There is a newer 2.6.26-12 kernel image due to hit the dailies shortly
which should fix the issue.  See:

Alternatively you can try the work-around mentioned in the list posting:

  http://lists.debian.org/debian-boot/2008/12/msg00058.html

which seems to have worked around the problem for the the user who first
identified this issue.  Note that the released Lenny RC1 images are
actually missing the 'pata_marvell' module completely as documented in:
