cannot boot kernel 2.6 from SATA ICH5 hardware


I would like to try out the 2.6 kernel, but was never able to install
it on my new hardware.

It seems that this time the problem I'm running into is that the initrd image 
loads a _SCSI_ driver for my _IDE_ SATA controller. I read some
stories about solving this by changing the order of drivers (generating a 
custom initrd image which first loads the IDE driver).

Before diving into that I thought to ask you...

I've included the boot log (I copied it by hand) at the end of this

I use the following boot stanza in GRUB:

title Debian 2.6.5-1-686-smp
kernel (hd0,5)/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.5-1-686-smp root=/dev/hde6 devfs=mount 
hdc=ide-cd vga=794
initrd (hd0,5)/boot/initrd.img-2.6.5-1-686-smp

I'm not sure what the correct entry in GRUB is. When I install the kernel
image with apt-get install it offers to install a lilo boot sector
which I refuse. so I am guessing the correct parameters in GRUB...

Thanks for any advice - I really want to try out 2.6!

My hardware:
ASUS P4P800 motherboard with intel ICH5 SATA controller
Maxtor 120 GB SATA HD
