Not sure exactly why, though I will confirm this is indeed correct
Actually, the machine I'm at right now has ide-generic in
its /etc/modules file, after piix; I added it there by hand for 2.6.8,
probably (this machine boots off SATA, so IDE is only needed after boot
for the e.g., DVD-RW). Its currently on 2.6.15; I'll check if its still
needed. Be back after a reboot :-(
