As you can see the modules to mount my ATA (not sata) drive are in

Here is some details of my system:

I haven't filed a bug since i can't understand what had caused the problem.
The update that today aptitude had proposed me was not too big (the
previous was less that a week ago) and the packages to upgrade seemed to
me not so critical: no new kernel, no initramfs-tools. I remember that
there was an upgrade for grub and klibc. I can't remember if there was
also a new udev, but looking from packages.qa.debian.org, it is possible.
After rebooting with a kernel 2.6.15 (that i keep for safety), i have
tryed regenerating the initramfs:
dpkg-reconfigure -p low linux-image-2.6.16-1-686
But this haven't solved the problem at all.
I haven't seen bugreports or messages on the list about similar problem:
either it is a problem specific of my system or this weekend many user
has preferred to go the sea. ;-)
Have someone any suggestion?
