What is your file system type for /?  Do you have the proper driver compiled 
into your kernel?  If not, are you using an initial ram disk, and does the 
initrd have the file system driver included?

If you want to use 2.6.6 with Debian compile options, you could always wait 
until it's available, or install 2.6.5, copy the config, make oldconfig, 
then add in your SATA drivers.
